In yet another effort to normalise bilateral ties, arch-foes Pakistan and India will revive their Track-II dialogue from today.
The two-day long first phase of the diplomatic talks will be held in Islamabad which will be followed by a second phase in New Delhi.
The Track-II — an unofficial dialogue involving private individual, mostly retired officials, to resolve conflicts — has long been part of the peace process between Pakistan and India and complemented the official dialogue.
It is the first time after the Pulwama attack in February, after which India suspended diplomatic talks with Pakistan, that the two countries are coming closer for a formal diplomatic session.
Reportedly, the purpose of these talks is to explore ways of resolving issues that have been lingering on for a long time and need to be resolved in order to give peace a chance.
