ISLAMABAD: Indian President Pranab Mukherjee has said his country is committed to peaceful, friendly and cooperative relations with Pakistan.

“India remains committed to peaceful, friendly and cooperative relations with Pakistan,” he said in a letter to President Mamnoon Hussain to felicitate him on Pakistan Day.

“I am of the firm conviction that our cooperation will lead to progress and prosperity in our region,” the letter added.

The letter, a copy of which was released by Indian High Commission in Islamabad on Monday, said the Indian president also extended best wishes to his Pakistani counterpart for his “good health and well-being”.

The statement came at a time when Islamabad and New Delhi are trying to find a way out of the current impasse in their bilateral dialogue, interrupted due to the attack on Indian airbase in January.

The incident in Pathankot had left at least seven security personnel dead, with India alleging that it was carried out from the neighbouring country.

A Joint Investigation Team (JIT) formed by Pakistan to probe the incident will travel to India later this month in a move that may help pave way for key meeting between the foreign secretaries.
