India seeks to live in peace with all its neighbours and the "world at large", Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said in New Delhi on Friday.
Stressing that India sought good relations with all its neighbours, the prime minister said: "We sincerely wish to resolve all outstanding issues with our neighbours through dialogue... that should characterise our relations."
His comments at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit comes two days after he offered Pakistan a "hand of friendship" while addressing crowds in the Kashmir.
In his opening remarks, he noted that former US president George W. Bush, "a good friend of India", was also speaking at the summit.
He said the opening day of the summit coincided with the 100th birth anniversary of the "great Indian scientist" Homi J. Bhabha. He added that in "concluding the civil nuclear agreement", we sought to realise "Bhabha's dream".
