Pakistan has invited the leaders of Indian Kashmir's main separatist alliance, the All Parties Hurriyat Conference, for informal talks on ways to resolve the dispute over Kashmir.
A Pakistani foreign ministry spokesman says the Hurriyat leaders have been asked to travel on June 2nd using the new bus service between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad -- the two Kashmiri capitals. India in the past has denied passports to Hurriyat leaders to travel to Pakistan, saying Kashmir is an internal matter and Kashmiri leaders should not involve Pakistan.
However, under the peace process between the rival countries, travel on the new bus will require only a state permit and not a passport. There has been no reaction to the invitation so far from New Delhi.
