Pakistani, Indian PMs to discuss all issues: Spokesman.

UNITED NATIONS -- Pakistani and Indian prime ministers will discuss a whole range of issues in their September 29 meeting, aimed at reducing tensions and resumption of peace process, a senior Pakistan official said."Pakistan believes in the policy of dialogue. The dialogue should remain uninterrupted," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry told reporters at a news briefing, as the two countries confirmed the meeting between prime ministers Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and Manmohan Singh on the margins of the UN General Assembly. Responding to a question, he said, "All issues (between the two countries) are important" and would be discussed. Chaudhry noted terrorism is as much an issue of concern to Pakistan as it is to India. He said tackling terrorism would be effective, if the two countries work together.

The meeting, he hoped, would serve to set guidelines for resuming peace process.

"We hope composite dialogue process would be resumed."

Prime Ministered Nawaz Sharif is scheduled to address the UN General Assembly on September 27th while the Indian leader will deliver a speech on the following day.
