April 8 - Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari arrives in India for high level talks with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari arrived in India for talks with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday (April 8). The meeting marks the highest-level meeting on each other's soil in seven years as the nuclear armed foes seek to normalise relations. Relations have warmed since Pakistan promised its neighbour most favored nation trade status in 2011, although a $10 million bounty offered by Washington for a Pakistani Islamist blamed for the 2008 attacks on Mumbai stirred old grievances. At the lunch meeting the two leaders are expected to focus on trade, where progress has been made, leaving more intractable problems, such as Kashmir, to lower officials.
