STORY: President of Pakistan, Asif Ali Zardari left for home after paying obeisance at Sufi saint Khwaja Moninuddin Chisti's shrine in Ajmer city of India's northwestern state of Rajasthan on Sunday (April 08).
Chief Minister of Rajasthan Ashok Gehlot and India's federal Parliamentary Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal greeted him before he boarded the aircraft.
Earlier in day, on his arrival in New Delhi, he had a luncheon meet with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Both India and Pakistan expressed satisfaction with today's talks, and showed keen interest in finding practical, pragmatic solutions to all issues.
The two leaders in their discussions noted that there had been steady progress in the dialogue process, which was restarted last year.
On his part, Zardari also invited the Indian Prime Minister to visit Pakistan, which Manmohan Singh accepted gladly.
Zardari, who prayed at the Sufi shrine here along with his 23-year-old son Bilawal Bhutto Zardari amidst tight security, offered a grant of rupees five crores on behalf of Pakistan government for the shrine.
Both Zardari and his son Bilawal Bhutto offered Chaddars (stoles) at the Dargah (mausoleum) of Khwaja Moninuddin Chisti.
In 2005, he had visited the Ajmer Sherif Dargah with his late wife, former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto.
India and Pakistan, which have fought three wars since their independence from British rule in 1947, have been slowly trying to repair relations and agreed to resume formal peace talks broken off in wake of the Mumbai attack in 2008.
