Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday accepted in principle an invitation by President Pervez Musharraf to travel to Pakistan and said he was looking forward to a "purposeful visit".

The invitation was extended by Musharraf during his hour-long meeting in Havana with Dr Singh.

"I told the president I'm looking forward to a purposeful visit at a time to be decided through diplomatic channels," Dr Singh said at a joint media interaction with Musharraf.

Asked whether he would travel to India, Musharraf said, "If invited I'll go."

Expressing satisfaction over the outcome of the talks with Dr Singh, Musharraf quipped, "Mohabbat zinadabad (Long live the love)".
