Ex-envoys of Pakistan, India say talks the only way


NEW DELHI: Former high commissioners from India and Pakistan, in an unusual meeting here on Friday, called for both sides to remain engaged in talks despite the obvious difficulties on the road to peace.

Meeting under the auspices of the Ananta Aspen Centre ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s high-profile visit to Washington in May, the envoys were of the firm view that the recent unofficial meeting between the foreign secretaries of both sides was a positive step towards normalisation of their ties.
