ISLAMABAD, July 14 (Xinhua) -- Local experts believe that the resumption of the Indo-Pakistan foreign ministers' talks scheduled in Islamabad on Thursday will bring a fresh breeze to the region though no big hopes should be pinned on it.
The coming Thursday talks will be discussing terrorism on top of its agenda and exploring ways to reduce trust deficit between the two countries.
Both the Pakistani legislature and the public hope for bringing onto the table of the Thursday ministerial talks all the key issues existing between the two countries, particularly the border security issue, the Kashmir dispute and the water dispute.
But the Indian side is trying to avoid touching upon such topics in the coming talks, which are vital for the peace and prosperity in the region, said Farhat Akram, a researcher with Islamabad Policy Research Institute, adding that the "locked horns " situation would remain.
The Indian External Affairs Minister S. M. Krishna recently said that India would like to talk to Pakistan on a number of concerns it has, but the minister stressed that India's "primary concern would continue to be terror which emanates from Pakistan."
"Nobody would pull a rabbit out of the hat," said a local analyst on anonymity while commenting on the coming talks between India and Pakistan.
