Pakistan and India report some progress in their latest round of peace talks, but say they remain far from a solution to the Kashmir territorial dispute.
The countries' foreign secretaries met today (Monday) in Islamabad to discuss several contentious issues that continue to divide the nuclear rivals.
Officials exchanged proposals on reducing the risk of another conventional war as well as confidence-building measures for the nations' nuclear arsenals.
Little progress was reported on Kashmir, but a top Pakistani official said the countries are discussing some options for the disputed region.
During the talks, Pakistan pledged relief aid to India for victims of Sunday's powerful tsunami. India announced easing visa restrictions for Pakistanis over age 65 and under 12 and issuing special student visas.
