Indo-Pak Secy level talks on water cancelled

PRESS TRUST OF INDIA

New Delhi, Jan 23: Yet another Indo-Pak engagement has been put off in the backdrop of strain in bilateral ties arising out of ceasefire violations.
 The scheduled January-end Indo-Pak Secretary-level meeting on waters, including differences over the Tulbul navigation project in Jammu and Kashmir, has been cancelled.
 There are some "scheduling issues", official sources said here, adding, therefore, new dates have to be worked-out for the meeting now.
 India had told Pakistan that the annual talks, which were held in March last year, could be held in January, following which both countries had decided on dates for the end of this month.
 However, now officials here said there were some "scheduling issues" because of which the meeting cannot take place.
 Significantly, Water Resources Secretary D V Singh, who was to lead the Indian delegation to Islamabad for talks, is retiring this month-end.
 This is the second high-level bilateral interaction which has been put off due to bad atmospherics between India and Pakistan.
 Earlier, Pakistan Commerce Minister Makhdoom Amin Fahim called off a scheduled visit to India to attend a business meet later this month in Agra.
