Indo-Pak talks: Pak media hails 'new era' of cooperation

July 28, 2011 15:01 IST
Hailing the "new era" of cooperation in Indo-Pak ties, the Pakistani media on Thursday said the two sides have revived the pursuit of an "uninterruptible" dialogue process as their foreign ministers held substantive talks, including on Kashmir-centric confidence-building measures to ease trade and travel across the Line of Control.

'Pakistan-India relationship: New era dawns in ties', read the headline in the Express Tribune daily, a day after the meeting between External Affairs Minister S M Krishna and his Pakistani counterpart Hina Rabbani Khar in New Delhi.

The Daily Times said in its headline that 'Pakistan, India promise 'new era' of cooperation, Relations back on track', while the right-wing daily The Nation's headline read: 'India willing to talk Kashmir.'

'Pakistan, India revive search for enduring dialogue process,' the Dawn headline said.

On Wednesday's talks, The News said that Pakistan and India are to enhance trade and ease visa regime. The two sides "vow to resolve all outstanding issues, including Kashmir," it said.

The Urdu press had almost similar coverage, with the headline in the leading Jang daily saying: 'Pakistan, India agree to reduce differences over Kashmir.'

Nawaiwaqt newspaper reported, "Kashmiris will get six-month multiple visa, talks for peaceful Kashmir solution will continue."

"As the Indian media swooned over Hina Rabbani Khar's social graces and fashion sense, Jane Birkin handbag, Chanel sunglasses, her pearls and her diamonds, substantive gains were made in the people-to-people component of India's relations with Pakistan in her talks with Indian Foreign Minister S M Krishna," The Express Tribune said.
