Pakistan's all-powerful military commanders, on Friday, discussed India's invitation to military ruler Gen Pervez Musharraf for talks and the statements by Islamic militant groups opposing his proposed visit to New Delhi.
An official statement issued in Islamabad at the end of the first day of the two-day conference of the commanders at the Army Headquarters in Rawalpindi made a one-line reference to India's invitation stating that discussion took place on India's positive response to Pakistan's desire for a dialogue on the issue of Kashmir.

Official sources said the meeting of the corps commanders, the highest policy-making forum of the military government since the 1999 coup, which brought Musharraf to power, reviewed in detail the developments that followed Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's invitation to Musharraf to visit New Delhi for a summit meeting.

Musharraf is understood to have explained the developments following Vajpayee's invitation and the preparations underway for the summit meeting which is likely to take place in July after the Indian Prime Minister recovers from knee surgery.
