Cease-Fire in Kashmir Extended

World IN BRIEF / INDIA

January 24, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

India extended its 2-month-old unilateral cease-fire in Kashmir for another month, prompting a guarded reaction from rival Pakistan and scorn from separatist guerrilla groups.

Pakistan urged India to resume deadlocked talks with the participation of leaders from Jammu and Kashmir state and allow a peace trip to Pakistan by a delegation of Indian-ruled Kashmir's main separatist alliance. India says it is up to Pakistan to take the peace process forward.

Rebels dismissed the extension as a ploy to mislead the international community.
