Swaraj during her stay in Pakistan’s federal capital will also hold talks with Sartaj Aziz, Pakistan’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs.
“External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to lead Indian delegation for ‘Heart of Asia’ 5th Ministerial Meeting on Afghanistan on December 9 in Islamabad,” Indian External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.
Swaraj’s visit comes two days after talks between the National Security Advisors of Pakistan and India in Bangkok, where they discussed terrorism, Kashmir and a range of key bilateral issues apart from agreeing to carry forward the engagement.
According to media reports, Indian minister will call on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and meet his Adviser on Foreign Affairs Aziz on the sidelines of the ‘Heart of Asia’ regional conference on Afghanistan on Wednesday.
Indian Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar will also be accompanied by Sushma Swaraj during her visit, who was also present during a meeting between Pakistan’s National Security Advisor Nasir Janjua and his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval in Bangkok.
