Negroponte for Musharraf-Bhutto talks resumption

ISLAMABAD: US Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte on Sunday urged Pakistan’s President Pervez Musharraf and PPP Chairperson Benazir Bhutto to restart political negotiations. According to sources Negroponte said that President Musharraf and Benazir Bhutto should resume the political negotiation.

“If steps were taken by both sides to move back towards the kind of reconciliation discussions they had been having, we think that could be very positive,” Negroponte said. He said such talks would “help improve the political environment and pull the political actors back from the atmosphere of political brinksmanship and confrontation.”-SANA
