Islamabad: 'Aman ka chakka' or a 'sixer for peace' is how the Pakistani media hailed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's invitation to the country's top leaders to watch the high-octane semi-final between India and Pakistan at Mohali on Wednesday.

Reports on the invitation extended yesterday by Singh to President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani featured prominently on the front pages of all Pakistani dailies today.

The News daily ran its report with the headline: "Aman ka Chakka - Singh invites Zardari, Gilani to watch semifinal".

The banner headline in the influential Dawn newspaper read "Singh invites Zardari, Gilani to watch high voltage match," while the headline in The Express Tribune was "India opens fresh bout of cricket diplomacy".

Most reports referred to the invitation as a positive development that would boost the resumption of the stalled peace process between the two countries.
