Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images] has sent a new year greeting card featuring a dove to Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari [Images].

"With all good wishes for the new year," the card, which the Pakistan president's office received a few days ago, said.

The card, signed by Dr Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur, could be described as a message for better relations between the two countries following the souring of ties in the wake of the terrorist attack on Mumbai [Images], official sources in the Pakistan government told PTI.

Officials of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad [Images] said Dr Singh also sent a card to his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani [Images].

Singh and Zardari last met on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly session in New York in September, when they pledged to jointly combat terrorism.

Zardari has also said the two countries must not allow 'non-state actors' to hijack the peace process.
