Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani today expressed confidence that the forthcoming meeting between the foreign ministers of Pakistan and India would be fruitful and would pave the way for further dialogue.

Indian External Affairs Minister SM Krishna will travel to Islamabad July 15.

"The willingness to resume the stalled dialogue presents a win-win situation for both the countries, as peace and stability is the only way forward for the progress and prosperity of the entire region," Gilani said during a meeting with Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Xinhua reported.

Pakistan is desirous of a negotiated and peaceful resolution of all disputes with India, a statement the Prime Minister's office quoted Gilani as saying.

According to sources, the issue of counter-terrorism and other matters that could contribute to creating an atmosphere of peace and security between the two countries will be discussed at the Qurreshi-Krishna meeting.

India insists Pakistan must take action against those who had been behind the 2008 Mumbai attacks. New Delhi has blamed the Lashkar-e-Taiba group for the attack, which left 166 people dead.
