India, Pakistan Holding Peace Summit in New York



United Nations, 28 September 2013: A meeting of the Pakistani and Indian prime ministers in New York this weekend is a fresh chance for one leader to push for peace on the subcontinent — and likely the last chance for the other.

Three-time Pakistani premier Nawaz Sharif and India's Manmohan Singh are due to meet Sunday on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly. It is their first face-to-face since Sharif's election victory in May. Singh will step down next year.

Sharif calls the meeting a chance for a "new beginning," but Singh has tamped down expectations for the talks, which take place amid an upsurge in militant attacks in disputed Kashmir.

Speaking on Friday after a White House meeting with President Barack Obama, Singh said, "the epicenter of terror still remains focused in Pakistan."
