IRNA

Islamabad, Nov 28, IRNA -- Pakistani President General Pervez 
Musharraf has said that the recent India-Pakistan peace overtures 
should form the start of a process and not the end of it, Radio 
Pakistan reported Friday. 
"The recent peace overtures must lead to a dialogue between the 
two countries to include all outstanding issues, including the core 
issue of Jammu and Kashmir," he told a visiting US congressional 
delegation including former First Lady Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton 
and Senator Jack Reed who met him in Rawalpindi Thursday night. 
Pakistan`s Prime Minister Mir Zafarullah Jamali on Sunday 
announced a ceasefire on the Line of Control (LoC) in the disputed 
region of Kashmir as a gesture of goodwill to India. 
India responded positively and forces of the two countries are 
enforcing ceasefire along the LoC, un-disputed border and in Siachin 
Glacier in the north for the last three days. 
During the course of the meeting Musharraf and the US Senators 
reportedly discussed the situation in Afghanistan and the recent steps
taken by Pakistan with regard to improvement of relations with India. 
The US senators expressed appreciation about Pakistan`s critical 
role in the fight against terrorism and the valuable help rendered by 
Pakistan for stability in the region, according to the radio. 
"Senator Hillary Clinton congratulated the president for the steps
taken by him for the promotion of peace with India," it said. 
Later, former US President Bill Clinton spoke to President 
Musharraf on telephone, the report said, they discussed India-Pakistan
relations.
