India-Pak FMs talks in July
New Delhi: India-Pakistan talks at the foreign ministers’ level will take place in Islamabad on July 15. S M Krishna will visit the Pakistan capital for the talks at the invitation of his counterpart, it was announced on Tuesday (May11) after the two leaders talked on telephone for about 20 minutes on a range of issues of interest.
‘We had a good talk’, Qureshi told reporters after the phone call, while Krishna said that the July meeting would follow up on the dialogue the Prime Ministers of two countries had in Thimphu on the sidelines of SAARC summit.
The Pakistan minister cautioned that elements could always try to impede the process of normalization of bilateral ties. He recalled that 26/11 happened in Mumbai when he was in Delhi for talks with Indian leadership.
Indian Home Minister P Chidambaram would be visiting Islamabad in June to attend the SAARC home ministers’ conference. He would be accompanied by Foreign secretary Nirupama Rao. Both will have talks with their Pakistani counterparts, Qureshi stated.
Krishna said India has decided to have a dialogue as there has been a “transformation” in ties with assurance coming at the level of Pakistan Prime Minister that India’s “core concern” with regard to terrorism would be addressed adequately.
