ISLAMABAD: India's new High Commissioner to Pakistan, TCA Raghavan along with his wife arrived in Pakistan on Monday and said that steps should be undertaken to address terrorism, reported Press Trust of India.
Senior officials from the foreign Ministry of Pakistan welcomed the Indian High Commissioner at Wagah Border.
Raghavan said that India wants good and friendly ties with Pakistan, keeping in mind that friendly relations are in the benefit of the citizens of both countries.
He reiterated that steps be taken to counter terrorism.
Raghavan was appointed in India, a day after Nawaz Sharif was sworn in as Prime Minister in Pakistan.
He replaces Sharat Sabharwal, who was earlier given an extension.
It was previously believed that Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh wanted Sabharwal to stay on so that a visit to Pakistan would remain on the cards.
Sources confirmed that Raghavan's appointment will not affect Singh's decision to visit Pakistan, a decision that Singh has yet to make.
