Pakistan believes in "durable peace" in South Asia facilitated by the resolution of all disputes with India, including Jammu and Kashmir, its Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said in Sharm-el-Sheikh on Wednesday.

Addressing the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit a day before he meets his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh, he said there had recently been "forward movement " in relations with India. He said he hoped to "sustain momentum and move towards comprehensive engagement".

"We believe durable peace in South Asia is achievable... facilitated by the resolution of all outstanding disputes, including Jammu and Kashmir."

The peace dividend for 1.5 billion people of the region would be enormous, he added.
