Krishna visits Data Darbar and Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore


On the final day of his Pakistan trip, External Affairs Minister SM Krishna visited Pakistan's cultural hub Lahore. Krishna went to the historic 'Minar-e-Pakistan', Data Darbar sufi shrine and the Ranjit Singh mausoleum. Krishna also visited Gurdwara Dera Sahib which houses Ranjeet Singh's mari (abode) and shrine of Ali Hajvari, with foolproof security in place at all venues. Earlier in the day, he also met Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and Governor Latif Khosa. Winding up his three-day visit that saw signing of a key pact on a liberalised visa regime, Mr. Krishna termed his talks with the Pakistani leadership as 'fruitful'.
