Pak Minister invited for CWG inauguration

India has formally invited Pakistan Sports Minister Ijaz Hussain Jakhrani along with those from other neighbouring countries, to attend the Commonwealth Games inaugural ceremony here on October 3, sources said here today.

However, it was not clear whether a formal invitation had been extended to Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.

The sources, when asked whether Mr Qureshi had been invited, said he was ''welcome'' to come. The sources did not say whether a formal invitation had been extended to Mr Qureshi.

External Affairs Minister S M Krishna also said in New York that Mr Qureshi was ''most welcome to witness some of the Games at least, and give us a chance to continue the dialogue.'' Asked whether any leaders from any other country had been invited, the sources said the Presidents of Maldives and Nauru and the Governor General of New Zealand had confirmed their participation.
