Islamabad: Pakistan today said Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani told his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh that Kashmir and other longstanding issues have to be addressed "earnestly" and noted their meeting was a "win-win" event.

"In short, Mohali was a win-win for the Pakistan-India process of engagement," Foreign Office spokesperson Tehmina Janjua said, referring to yesterday's meeting between Gilani and Singh during the thrilling semi-final match.

Longstanding issues between India and Pakistan, including the Kashmir issue, have to be "addressed earnestly" by the two sides while they focus on stability and peace in the region, Gilani was quoted as saying by Janjua.

"Of course, there are longstanding issues, including the issue of Jammu and Kashmir, that need to be addressed earnestly with a view to finding a solution that accords with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people," Gilani told Singh.
