New Delhi: Indian government has declared not a repeat it’s ‘hard stand’ this time as the Pakistan authorities have invited pro-freedom Kashmiri leaders to hold talks ahead of India-Pakistan NSA level talks. Earlier in August 2014 India had unilaterally cancelled Foreign Secretary level talks with Pakistan after Pakistan had invited Kashmiri leader for a meeting before meeting Indian authorities.

The negotiations remained stuck for many months till Indian Prime Minister met his Pakistani counterpart in July in Ufa, Russia and both neighbours decided to hold National Security Advisor (NSA) level talks in August.
