Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari will travel to India later this month as tensions ease between the nuclear-armed neighbours.

Zardari will visit, in a private capacity, the shrine of a famous Sufi Muslim saint, in north-west Rajasthan state.

He held out the possibility that it could turn into an official visit.

This will be the first visit to India by a Pakistani head of state for seven years.

Tensions between the two countries have eased in the last year, and there have been notable efforts to improve mutual trade.

Dialogue between India and Pakistan is being strongly encouraged by the United States in particular, as it is keen to promote regional stability ahead of the withdrawal of NATO-led forces in Afghanistan.
