"Indo-Pak. Peace Treaty talks Move Forward"
By Iftikhar Gilani.

NEW DELHI: India and Pakistan have signed a nine-point agreement to improve cooperation between border forces but India refused Pakistan’s demand to stop fencing and constructions near the border.Indian and Pakistani border forces agreed to combine efforts against border crimes such as smuggling and human trafficking and strengthen border patrols after four days of talks in Chandigarh between India’s Border Security Force (BSF) and Pakistan Rangers." Full story. Unfortunately, I learned that I should have stored this article, because many people and newspapers move the articles. My apologies.

I have tried to find that story, but this is as close as I could get:

Peace process moving at ‘good speed’: Musharraf.

Dubai, June 5
Observing that the peace process with India is moving ahead at a “fairly good speed”, Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has expressed optimism that issues of Siachen and the construction of the Kishenganga hydro-power project in Jammu and Kashmir will be resolved peacefully.

Musharraf, who arrived on a two-day visit to the UAE yesterday, said the conducive environment of goodwill, witnessed now, had never been there before.

“We have had the joint statement, which was not there earlier when we went to discuss peace with India...so things are moving in the right direction,” he was quoted as saying by the local media here.

“The peace process is moving ahead at a fairly good speed, but it will take time to remove the hatred of 50 years, when both countries went to war three times, besides tens of skirmishes,” he said. — PTI

Sorry about the missing links. This happened in my very beginning of getting my own site. I have learned so much since then. (Hardly enough!) Just for your convenience, I have started keeping a record of writings just in case this occurred again. I don't remember how long ago I started this site, but it is mostly what others have written. Some of it includes other writers at Love America First. This makes sense, because the name of the site I am referring to is Love America First-2.) :)
