altJPNN/ New Delhi/July 27, 2015/ India and Pakistan were about to reach a "framework" on Kashmir during UPA rule and both sides even had decided not to proclaim "victory" post the announcement, former Pakistan Foreign Minister Khurshid Kasuri said Monday. "We were about to reach a solution on Kashmir, a framework. Solution could only be arrived at by cabinets and Parliament. We could only provide a framework. But we were trying to deliver something. I will give the details in my book to be published later this year," Kasuri said. Speaking during a discussion on 'Improving Indo-Pak relations' , Kasuri said it was the outcome

of three years of "hardwork" by the then Pakistani President Pervez Musharaf and India's then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh but the framework did not materialise due to subsequent internal turmoil in Pakistan in 2007. "One of the secrets of our success with Dr Manmohan Singh was that there was an unwritten agreement between the two sides that when the framework on Kashmir is announced, neither side will proclaim victory," he said. Kasuri, who was the Foreign Minister during the Presidency of Pervez Musharraf, said the Ufa (Russia) meeting between Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Nawaz Sharif and the subsequent joint-statement were not "properly managed". Emphasising on the need for talks, he said the positive side of Ufa was that the two countries met. "The two foreign offices would have done better if they were allowed to do what they are supposed to do," he said. Agency

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
