Earlier Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari offered “full moral, diplomatic and political support” to Kashmiris in their struggle and Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani urged India for a meaningful dialogue on Kashmir in their Kashmir Solidarity Day speeches on Saturday.
But despite pressures, India plans to relentlessly push for speedy trail and unraveling of the conspiracy behind the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. India is also not keen on following a timeframe for resolving contentious issues — one of Pakistan’s demands that marred the outcome of the foreign ministers’ meeting in Islamabad in July 2010.
Indian officials hope that Pakistan will not use its “high-decibel rhetoric” again at the Thimpu talks. While progress is expected on the proposals relating to humanitarian and trade issues, terrorism will still be a major roadblock.
