Pakistan-India fail to reach agreement on Siachen demilitarisation

NEW DEHLI: Pakistan and India failed to reach an agreement on the demilitarisation of Siachen after talks ended in New Delhi on Tuesday.
Both sides have reportedly maintained their earlier adopted stances.
India wants Pakistan to authenticate the AGPL, both on the maps and the ground, as it occupies most of the dominating posts on the Saltoro Ridge, they said. Pakistan, in turn, has been insisting on maintaining the pre-1972 troop positions as agreed in the Simla Agreement.
It was the 12th round of inconclusive talks on Siachen, considered one of the less difficult disputes to resolve between India and Pakistan.
“Both sides agreed to continue the discussions in a meaningful and result-oriented manner. They agreed to meet again on a mutually-convenient date in Islamabad,” a joint statement by India and Pakistan said.

Earlier, The Hindu reported that Indian Defence Ministry officials had said talks on the first day were held in a “constructive framework”.
Defence Secretary Pradeep Kumar led the Indian delegation at the talks with his Pakistani counterpart Lt. General (Retd) Syed Ather Ali.
The decision to take the dialogue process forward between the two countries was taken last year during the meeting of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Yousaf Raza Gilani in Thimpu.
