Chief Minister, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, Monday welcomed talks between National Security Advisors (NSAs) of India and Pakistan in Bangkok, hoping it will set the tone for reconciliation between the two neighbouring countries. He stressed upon the need to restore the trust deficit and favored sustained and meaningful dialogue between New Delhi and Islamabad. “It is a good beginning. I am happy that bilateral talks between NSAs of India and Pakistan were held quietly,” said the Chief Minister, while talking to media persons during his extensive tour of the winter capital to review progress on developmental projects. The Chief Minister exuded confidence that the fresh round of talks will help in preparing ground for engaging the two sides at a higher level, which will help in carrying forward peace and reconciliatory moves to embed political stability in the region, especially Jammu & Kashmir.
