    India-Pakistan held high-level talks in Bangkok

    Dec 7, Bangkok: Four months after an earlier postponement, India and Pakistan have held high-level talks in Bangkok on Sunday. The meeting was described as candid, cordial and constructive.

    A statement issued after Sunday's meeting said the security advisers of the two countries had also talked about Kashmir, peace and security. The statement added that the meeting in  Bangkok was held in a "candid, cordial and constructive atmosphere".

    It said, "The meeting was agreed to carry forward the constructive engagement between the two countries."

    Although Indian PM Narendra Modi invited his Pakistani counterpart to his inauguration last year, relations have deteriorated since then. 

    Cross-border firing along the disputed region of Kashmir have killed dozens of people from both sides. India had initially insisted that any talks should only cover what it refers to as terrorism.
