Zardari will be meeting Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh during his three-hour stopover in Delhi. It will be Zardari's first visit to India as Pakistan's President, and will provide a chance to promote bilateral ties between both sides.
The meeting was held apparently to brief President Zardari before his daylong visit to India on Sunday on the issues that may be raised during his talks with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. On top of these could be India's demand for the custody of Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed for his alleged involvement in the Mumbai attacks.
Talking to reporters earlier in the day, the President said the Indian Prime Minister was unlikely to raise the issue of Hafiz Saeed, adding that he would convey to his host the government's stance if the matter came up.
