PM lauds friendship letters between Indian, Pakistani kids - 26 March 2006
New Delhi, India

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has commended an organisation's efforts to encourage the children of India and Pakistan to write letters of friendship to each other.

Two days after members of Friends Without Borders crossed over to Pakistan at the Wagah border in Punjab with 11,000 letters of friendship from India, Manmohan Singh described the move as "a beautiful event, being led by the children of both countries".

"It has very positive ramifications for the future of both nations, once this generation of children grows up and takes on the reins of leadership in both countries," he said in a special message issued here Sunday.

While thanking Friends Without Borders, the prime minister "saluted the children of India who have written heartfelt letters of friendship" and encouraged more children to join the movement.

The 11,000 letters were collected over the past year by the organisation from children in schools and day-care centres across India. These will be distributed among children in Lahore.

A special letter on the theme "India loves Pakistan" was prepared on tarpaulin in the course of three events at Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Bangalore .

After being exhibited at a Pakistani venue, the borders of this letter will be distributed among select schools. The tarpaulin will be distributed to NGOs to make emergency shelters.

Members of Friends Without Borders had tried to meet Manmohan Singh when he visited Amritsar Friday to flag off a new bus service to Pakistan, but were not successful.
