Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee meets with Kashmir separatist leaders Friday, following positive results from Thursday's first-ever direct talks between separatists and top Indian leaders. More than 65,000 people have died in 14 years of fighting between Indian forces and Islamic militants in Kashmir. Both sides agree to continue talks toward peace. Hear NPR's Bob Edwards and BBC reporter Sanjeev Srivastava.
