Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari is in India, where he met with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi. The visit is the first to India by a Pakistani head of state since 2005.

Standing next to Mr. Singh Sunday, Mr. Zardari told reporters the two discussed all important bilateral issues, and that he expects the Indian leader to visit Pakistan soon.

Mr. Singh said the two countries must find peaceful ways to resolve their differences.

The two nuclear-armed nations are seeking to normalize relations following the 2008 terror attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai. India has expressed concerns about security, demanding that Pakistan show its seriousness about reining in terrorist groups. India has blamed the Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group for the attack in Mumbai.

Islamist Hafiz Saeed, suspected of masterminding the Mumbai attacks, operates openly in Pakistan. Last week, the United States placed a $10 million bounty on Saeed.
