Pakistani, Indian officials held talks in Dubai over Kashmir

Top intelligence officers from Pakistan and India held secret talks in Dubai in January in a fresh effort to calm tensions over Kashmir, according to people with close knowledge of the matter in New Delhi.

Kashmir has long been a flashpoint between India and Pakistan, both of which claim all of the region but rule only in part.
