ISLAMABAD: India was committed to rebuilding its relations with Pakistan through dialogue, Indian Foreign Minister S M Krishna said Friday.

Last year Pakistan and India resumed their tentative peace process, which collapsed after gunmen killed 166 people in Mumbai in November 2008.

“We are committed to finding solutions to all issues that have beset our relationships, through bilateral dialogue,” Krishna told reporters after arriving in Islamabad on a three-day visit.

The trip comes after President Asif Ali Zardari met Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on the sidelines of a summit in Tehran last month.

During his visit to Islamabad from September 7 to 9, Krishna will hold talks with Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar.

“I bring a message of goodwill from India to the people of Pakistan. I wish to reiterate the desire of India to see a stable and prosper Pakistan living in peace,” Krishna said.
