The Centre and the moderate Hurriyat leaders resolved on Wednesday to set up a mechanism to look into all aspects of the Kashmir problem to further carry forward the peace process.

Even though the contours of the proposed mechanism have not been spelt out, it appears that a select Hurriyat Group may interact with the Union Home Minister over the proposals to be tossed up by the separatists for specific discussions.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's media advisor Sanjaya Baru said the PM described his discussions with Hurriyat as "meeting of minds” and hoped the discussions will lead to better times for the people of the Jammu and Kashmir.

The response from the Hurriyat leaders also appeared positive going by the remarks of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
