Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf said on Sunday that his talks with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in Havana 'augured' well for resolving bilateral issues, including the Kashmir problem, and the peace process has 'won'.

In his first remarks after the meeting with Dr Singh on the margins of the NAM summit, Musharraf, who arrived in New York from Havana to address the UN General Assembly session, told reporters that their talks were 'successful'.

He said the joint statement issued after the talks was to the satisfaction of both sides. He said he would not call it a victory, but that the peace process had won, the state-run APP news agency reported.

Musharraf said that during his meeting with Dr Singh, they did not go into the specifics of solutions of various issues currently being discussed by the two countries.

"We agreed to narrow down the divergences and strengthen convergences. The road forward is the willingness to discuss and resolve the Jammu and Kashmir dispute," he said.

He said the talks at the Foreign Secretary-level between Pakistan and India would be held expeditiously. "We have not fixed the dates but they are going to be held very soon."

On his invitation to Dr Singh to visit Pakistan, Musharraf said the Indian prime minister was keen to visit the country at an appropriate time.
