Delayed negotiations between India-Pak foreign secretaries to be held in early February
The delayed talks were originally supposed to be held in January but were postponed, following the Pathankot incident. In the notorious Pathankot attack, as many as seven Indian military officers were killed and five militants died. Talks between the foreign secretaries of India and Pakistan were supposed to be held on 15th and 16th January.
According to Indian media, negotiations between both countries’ foreign secretaries will be held in early February. Pakistan’s Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry and his Indian counterpart Jaishankar are likely to meet from 6th February to 8th February. In order to confirm the dates of the meeting, both countries are in touch with each other.
Terrorism and other issues will be the focus of the talks between the foreign secretaries.
Pakistan had extended its cooperation with India after the Pathankot attack and apprehended several suspects from South Punjab. According to Pakistan, it had acted on leads provided from India, which were phone numbers.
