Islamabad: Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is a "genuine person" who desired to resolve all issues including Kashmir with Pakistan, Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said.

"We have resumed comprehensive dialogue with India, and are in the process of normalising trade relations with India, which will benefit the people of both the countries," Gilani said Saturday in Davos, Switzerland.

Gilani said Islamabad also attached importance to its relations with Kabul, and a peaceful and stable Afghanistan was in Pakistan's strategic interest, the Associated Press of Pakistan reported.

"We see Pakistan as a factor of peace, stability and development in the region," he said.
