Zafar Mehmood, Pakistan's commerce secretary, is in New Delhi, the Indian capital, for trade talks with Rahul Khullar, his Indian counterpart.

The talks could culminate in the signing of a trade agreement which sees Pakistan calling India one of its "most favoured nation's" to trade with - a deal which would mark a major breakthrough in relations between the traditionally antagonistic neighbours.

But there are mixed feelings about the agreement among business people in Pakistan's textile and other industrial communities.
