    Background: Pakistan and India held their first summit talks for ten years on January 18, and found agreement on a number of contentious issues. Venue for the meeting was the foreign office in Pakistan's federal capital, Islamabad. The Indian delegation was led by External Affairs Secretary Kanwar Natwar Singh, and was greeted by Pakistani Foreign Minister Sahibzada Yaqub Khan. Relations between the two countries have been unsettled since Mohammed Ali Jinnah successfully advocated partition from India in 1947 and became the first governor-general of Pakistan. His portrait overlooked the talks. A communique issued after the two day summit said three sub-commissions will be set up under a proposed India-Pakistan joint commission. A further exchange of prisoner lists was made, and the delegations discussed how they could identify detainees, then ensure their release. Afghanistan was also discussed and Pakistan assured India that it intends playing a constructive role in the March (1983) Non-Aligned summit to be held in New Delhi.
