Delhi proposes dates for Home Secy level talks
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Feb 21: India has proposed two sets of dates - March 21-22 and March 28-29 - to Pakistan for Home Secretary-level talks, where counter-terrorism, including progress in Mumbai attacks trial and the demand for voice samples of 26/11 accused are expected to be discussed.
Home Secretary Gopal K Pillai extended the invitation to Pakistan Interior Secretary Chaudhry Qamar Zaman last week and a response from Islamabad is awaited, official sources said.
This will be the first structured bilateral Secretary- level meeting on counter-terrorism after the recent Indo-Pak decision to resume comprehensive talks. More than two years after India had suspended composite dialogue with Pakistan in the wake of 26/11 attacks in 2008, the two sides recently decided to resume comprehensive dialogue on all outstanding issues.
