Leaders of Pakistan and India attend Cricket World Cup semi-finals

Leaders of Pakistan and India attend Cricket
World Cup semi-finals. On Wednesday, March 30, Pakistani Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza
Gilani joined Indian Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh in India’s city of Mohali to watch the
Cricket World Cup tournament’s semi-final match between their nations. The leaders hoped
for peace between the neighboring countries through “cricket diplomacy,” which was
first introduced in 1978 by former Pakistani President Zia-ul-Haq. Although the game itself
was won by India, both nations were victorious in engaging in friendly discussions to renew
their relations. Commenting on the successful outcome of the talks, Indian Foreign Secretary
Nirupama Rao said, “An extra positive and encouraging spirit has been generated due
to today’s meeting.” We join in applauding the talented Pakistani
and Indian cricket teams, as we send our respectful appreciation for Your Excellencies’ diplomatic
initiatives. With Heaven’s grace, may the beautiful people of Pakistan and India flourish
in evermore shared understanding and peace.
