It is a very important discussion and this issue is linked with the national issue. It is very necessary for us. Kashmir is an integral part of India and the talks to be held in this connection will be a good beginning.
The negotiation should continue and our party is in favour of such a thing. In the talks there should be no mediator and the negotiation should be held within the ambit of Shimla agreement and the Lahore declaration. The question is why the Agra Summit failed? Had there been a clear-cut agenda in this regard, the talks would not have failed.
The President of Pakistan has invited the Hon. Prime Minister for further talks in this connection in Islamabad. Before visiting Pakistan the Prime Minister should study the psyche of Pakistani President.
The President of Pakistan says that the Kashmir problem is related with the independence of Kashmir. The further talks to be held in Pakistan should not be a failure like that of Agra Summit. Before going there we should have a clear-cut agenda in this connection.
If the President of Pakistan does not agree to the agenda, I feel that the Prime Minister should not visit that country and hold further talks. It should be a very clearly written programme.
