Pakistani PM to Press Ahead Peace Process With India

Pakistan's prime minister says he will push forward the ongoing peace process with India when he meets his Indian counterpart, Manmohan Singh, in New Delhi next month.

Shaukat Aziz travels to India and two other South Asian nations after the Muslim festival of Eid al-Fitr in the third week of November. In New Delhi, he is also scheduled to meet with Congress party leader, Sonia Gandhi

Mr. Aziz told reporters Sunday that Pakistan desires to resolve all issues peacefully with every country, including India.

Pakistan and India, who have fought three wars, have been engaged in formal peace talks since January.

Mr. Aziz also said President Pervez Musharraf's comments on Kashmir last week were meant to stir a debate within Pakistan, not as a proposal for India.
