Foreign Ministers' Talks Pak proposes dates
PRESSS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, June 28: Pakistan has proposed to India two sets of dates -- July 11-12 and July 25-26 -- for Foreign Ministerial talks to be held here.
The dates will be finalized after India responds to the proposal, sources said.
The Foreign Ministers will review the discussions held at Secretary-level meetings on various issues, including militancy, Jammu and Kashmir, Siachen and Sir Creek, over the last four months.
The talks between the Foreign Ministers would be preceded by a meeting of Foreign Secretaries.
Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao and her Pakistani counterpart Salman Bashir held talks on Jammu and Kashmir, Peace and Security and Confidence-Building Measures in Islamabad last week.
During the talks, the two sides agreed to initiate a number of confidence building measures in nuclear and conventional fields.
At the same time, India made it clear to Pakistan that a resolution to a "complex" issue like Jammu and Kashmir could not be found in the "shadow of the gun".
