The All Parties Hurriyat Conference will continue its dialogue with New Delhi in search for a just and enduring solution to the Kashmir problem, APHC spokesman Abdul Gani Bhat said on Thursday.
Bhat said the second-round talks would take place in March.
He said the deputy prime minister heard them patiently and quoted Advani as saying: "Guns must give place to political voice in the Valley."
Bhat said the two sides agreed that all forms of violence must end and that there should be a step-by-step approach for the resolution of the Kashmir issue.
Bhat said the government has agreed to conduct a rapid review of cases of political detenues in Jammu and Kashmir.
Ansari said the meeting with deputy prime minister must serve as an 'eye-opener' to the hardliners.
"We have been accused by the hardliners of making a sell-out of Kashmir cause. But now they will have to eat their
words," Ansari said.
In Srinagar, Chief Minister Mufti Mohammed Sayeed called the talks a 'breakthrough'. He said those who have joined the dialogue must be given a chance to move forward.
The Hurriyat team is likely to make a courtesy call on Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on Friday.
