New round of peace talks for Pakistan and India

Pakistan and India are to hold another round of peace talks in March, which will include an attempt to resolve their main dispute over Kashmir.

The announcement to hold the fourth round of talks on March 13-14 in Pakistan was made during the visit of Indian foreign minister Pranab Mukherjee to Islamabad.

The two sides also agreed to speed up the resolution of an old dispute over the icy wasteland of the Siachen Glacier - often called the world's highest battlefield - where the two countries have deployed thousands of troops since the 1980s.
