Islamabad, April 30 (Xinhua) Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gillani said Wednesday his government is committed to result-oriented talks with India for resolution of the Kashmir issue. While addressing a meeting in Muzaffarabad, capital of Pakistan-controlled Kashmir, Gillani said his country has always stood for peace, as it is the guarantee of stability in the region and the world at large.

“We want friendly relations with all countries, including India, ” the Associated Press of Pakistan (APP) quoted Gillani as saying.
