    WASHINGTON: India would like substantive discussions with Pakistan on the recent Kashmir tensions at an expected summit meeting in New York next month, diplomatic sources told Dawn.

    The sources said that Indian officials, who recently visited Washington, are believed to have indicated that New Delhi remains interested in a meeting between Pakistani and Indian prime ministers in New York next month. Both leaders are coming to New York in late September to attend the UN General Assembly.

    The two prime ministers will also be meeting US President Barack Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai during their visit.

    Mr Singh is coming to Washington on Sept 23 for an official meeting with Mr Obama.

    During a visit to Islamabad earlier this month, US Secretary of State John Kerry also invited Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to visit the United States for a meeting with President Obama. It is still not clear if Mr Nawaz will come to Washington or they will meet in New York.


    Mr Nawaz, who meets the Afghan leader in Islamabad later this month, is also scheduled to have another meeting with Mr Karzai in New York.

    The US president is also expected to have at least two meeting with his Afghan counterpart in New York.

    The most important of these will be a trilateral meeting involving Mr Obama and the Indian and Afghan leaders, but Mr Sharif will meet each of them separately.

    In these consultations, the Americans hope to make substantial progress in seeking regional cooperation for stabilising Afghanistan.

    The Indian and Pakistani media, however, reported last week that the Nawaz-Singh meeting was not yet confirmed. The reports said that because of recent tensions along the Line of Control, Mr Singh is reluctant to meet the Pakistani leader amid fears that it could hurt his Congress Party in next year’s general elections.

    Diplomatic sources in Washington say that when Indian National Security Adviser Shivshankar Menon visited the US capital last week for finalising the agenda for the Obama-Singh meeting, he told American officials that Mr Singh still wants to meet Mr Nawaz.

    Media reports suggest that while publicly the Indian government has taken a tough stance on the LoC issue, privately it is keen to defuse tensions.

    Sadly, Singh is no longer King.

    Congress is on a downslide.

    If he meets Nawaz, then Congress is surely to lose the 2014 hands down!

    Indians are furious that Pakistanis kill our people and we still talk.

    Talk for what?

    More killings?

    That has been suggested by many Indians, but our honorable Foreign Minister, Salman Khurshed, has said - we are a democracy.

    So, he will grandstand!

    Actually, the Indian COAS has no power to decide.

    The GoI should talk to the Pakistani Chief and the Pak PM maybe in attendance to give it a democratic sheen!

    Not many care, really. At least the ones who vote, do not care enough.

    These things would have absolutely no impact on electoral prospects.

    Food Security Bill has ensured that UPA-III happens to us. There is simply no other way.

    Usual brinkmanship. Not of any consequence.

    Soon, it would be business, as usual. Indians do not care.

    Mauni knows that his party is not going to win the coming election.

    So better to follow Madam's orders and ensure the 'secular' vote bank remains intact even if they lose the elections.

    Ashamed to call this man our PM.

    you guys will miss MMS.i can only wish for such an PM of Pakistan

    God forbid if modi is selected.was watching akbar owaisi latest speech last night and the muslim hate for modi is more than zaid hamid hate for hindus.

    unlike shia..sunni muslim are independent and never follow anyone orders.(order whom are not acceptable)with india having 90% of muslim population as sunni.the violence within india will be extremely huge under modi.

    Modi will be the best PM.

    We all know whenever their is a strong leader how many sunnis can do violence......we have seen that in Gujarat, so your BS is just wishful thinking, even Kashmir is with India and not with pakitan with all trhe violence. Muslims hate modi because he is a Hindus leader and they even know they can't do shyt to him! 90 or 100 % sunnis does not mean shyt, they can only listin to owaisi who is always hiding in Hyderabad and lives on patronage of con-gress send him out and he will not return his own sunnis will take pleasure to kill him e.g. Muhammad pehlwan!

    BTW I also wish you get MMS type PM then that will be the last nail in the coffin called pakistan!

    Actually YOU would miss MMS since MODI is not a shameless moni baba.

    PM like MODI would be beneficial to all the communities.

    This thread is not about Modi and Muslims (for which there already is a thread).
