The seminar was organised by the Forum for International Relations Development. Its chairman, Taha Qurashi, said the forum had prepared a five-year strategy to lobby politicians, intellectuals, opinion leaders and executives on both sides of the border to start a meaningful dialogue culminating in a summit and a 50-year no-war pact. News One director Sajjad Mir said â€œfair-mindedâ€ Pakistanis and Indians needed to come forward to promote peace between the two countries.
