Syed Ali Shah Geelani, the chairman of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference's hardline faction, will meet Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf in Delhi on April 17 at 1700 IST.

"I got the invitation from the Pakistan High Commission on Tuesday," Geelani said.

Asked what would be the agenda of his talks with Musharraf, he said: "Our stand [on Kashmir] is well-known and I am only going to repeat it."

Geelani has attacked Pakistan over the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service.

The moderate faction of the Hurriyat, led by Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, will also meet Musharraf on April 17.

The Pakistani president will be in the country to watch the final match in the ongoing India-Pakistan one-day cricket series.
