Islamabad, Jun 24 (Prensa Latina) Again with strictest confidence and no leak to the press the Foreign Affairs secretaries of India and Pakistan resume talks aimed at clarifying multiple unresolved issues between the two countries.
It was hardly leaked that Nirupama Rao (India) and Salman Bashir (Pakistan round of talks was going to tackle Kashmir, a territory in conflict almost since the moment in which the crumbling English colonialism established an arbitrary frontier between the two newly-found republics.
A couple of days ago Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani declared that Kashmir was the Pakistan’s heart and promised settlers the biggest diplomatic and moral support.

On Thursday itself the new Pakistani Foreign Affairs Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said it was the central matter between the two countries, If Kashmir is not the main issue then which will be the root of the problem?, She asked.
Meanwhile in New Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), main opposition party warned the government no to make commitment on Kashmir.
The BJP leader L. K. Advani threatened to organize a mass demonstration in case of being one of the agreements of the current talks with Islamabad.
The day before was spread that Rao and Bashir were focused on peace and security, including terrorism and indictment of Pakistani suspicious of being involved in November 2008’s terrorist attacks in Mumbai.
India has repeatedly expressed concern for slowness of trial and revelations that the Pakistani espionage system could be involved with that attack that have killed 166 and injured hundreds.
Another objective of Rao-Bashar meeting is to pave the way for next month talks between foreign affairs ministers from both nations.
