Pakistan and Libya said Thursday they have agreed on steps to strengthen economic ties.  

The announcement was made in the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, after talks between the visiting Libyan foreign minister, Abdulrahman Mohammed Shalqam, and his Pakistani counterpart, Abdul Sattar, the BBC reported.  

A Pakistani statement said they discussed a wide range of issues, including the civil war in Afghanistan and Pakistan's dispute with India over Kashmir.  

It said the recent visit to Libya by Pakistan's military ruler, Pervez Musharraf, had added a fresh vigor to bilateral relations, added the BBC.
