Seoul, Mar 27 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani had brief interactions with US President Barack Obama and his Indian counterpart Dr Manmohan Singh on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul on Monday.
"President Obama and Prime Minister Gilani shared greetings and formal courtesies," The Dawn quoted a diplomatic source, as saying.
He added that there was little time to talk about something substantive.
The two leaders are schedule to formally meet on Tuesday after conclusion of the summit, where they would be discussing ways to normalize bilateral ties in the light of the ongoing parliamentary debate in Pakistan.
