India and Pakistan to Review Ongoing Peace Process


Senior Indian and Pakistani officials will meet on September first in Islamabad to review their ongoing peace process.

The announcement was made on Monday in both capitals. It says Indian Foreign Secretary Shyam Saran will meet with his Pakistani counterpart, Riaz Mohammed Khan, to carry out an appraisal of the almost 19-month old peace process.

Nuclear rivals India and Pakistan resumed peace talks in January 2004, to resolve a host of disputes, including Kashmir. Since then, the two neighbors have restored border trade and travel and sport links, but little progress has been made on Kashmir.

In April, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf met with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi and declared the peace process "irreversible." They are expected to meet again next month on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York.
