Manmohan Singh still hopeful of Pakistan visit

New Delhi, Jan 3 : With barely five months left for his tenure to end, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday said he still did not give up hope of visiting Pakistan.

Addressing a press conference here, the PM said: "I would very much like to go to Pakistan. I was born in a village part of West Punjab."

"I still haven't given hope of going to Pakistan before I complete my tenure but given circumstances, would a trip be productive?" he asked.

He said he could not visit earlier since the circumstances were not conducive for that.

India and Pakistan, two nuclear armed South Asian neighbours, have difficult relationship over cross border terrorism and the 26/11 attack in 2008 despite some good patches of improved ties.
