Zardari's Indian visit

The meeting between Pakistan President, Asif Ali Zardari and Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh in New Delhi have evoked a mixed response from the pro- liberation and pro-India leaders of occupied Kashmir. While pro-India leaders welcome talks,  they stress on focusing the discussions on the Kashmir conflict.

President Zardari became the first Pakistani head of state since 2005 to visit India for a one-day trip. During a visit billed as private but of great diplomatic significance, Zardari lunched with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and invited him to visit Pakistan. - Text and photos by Agencies
