A day after Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee lavished praise on Lal Kishenchand Advani, describing the deputy prime minister as a source of strength, the latter returned the compliment saying Vajpayee's peace initiative with Pakistan has won global acclaim.
Briefing the leaders on his deliberations in the US and the UK, Advani said: "It [the peace initiative] has once again convinced the international community of Atalji's sincere efforts to establish peace and normal relations with Pakistan and to resolve all bilateral issues with our neighbour through dialogue," he said.
Some new intiatives for the benefit of poor, farmers, unemployed youth and backward regions were also discussed, party sources said.
