Singh, Musharraf to Meet in New York Next Month

  • VOA News

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf are to meet in New York on September 14th to review the 19-month old peace process between their countries. They will meet on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly session. India made the announcement as senior officials of the two neighbors began talks in New Delhi on ways to curb terrorism and drug trafficking. The two sides will also discuss how to deal with each other's nationals being held as prisoners, after a public outcry in India over Pakistan's plan to execute an Indian convicted of spying. A Pakistani foreign ministry official says Indian diplomats will be allowed to visit the convict in a Lahore jail on Tuesday. Pakistani authorities said Manjit Singh worked for Indian intelligence, but his family says he is actually Sarabjit Singh, a farmer from Punjab who accidentally crossed the frontier while drunk. His family members have threatened to commit suicide if he is executed.
