India, Pak hold missile, nuke talks

New Delhi, August 5:

Indian and Pakistani representatives today met to discuss formalising a pact to share information ahead of missile tests and other measures aimed at reducing the risk of nuclear conflict, an official said. The two-day talks will be the third round between the nuclear-armed neighbours, which began a sweeping peace dialogue last year to ease decades of bitter tensions. No official statement was expected before the end of talks tomorrow. The latest round is scheduled to be followed on Monday by discussions on other confidence building measures, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Navtej Sarna yesterday. The officials were also expected to complete a formal agreement on prior notification of missile tests.
