Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao To Go To Pakistan This Month-End

Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao will travel to Islamabad later this month to hold talks with her Pakistani counterpart during which India will raise the issue of nexus between Pakistan's ISI and the perpetrators of 26/11 attacks, as brought out by the trial of Pakistani-Canadian terrorist Tahawwur Rana in the US.

In the first such exercise since their last meet in February in Thimphu, Rao and her Pakistani counterpart Salman Bashir will hold parleys to review the status of bilateral ties and the situation in the region.

Highly-placed sources said Rao will be travelling to Islamabad later this month. They also said the probable dates for the meeting would be between June 24 and 27.

Other bilateral issues to be discussed during the meeting would be Jammu and Kashmir, peace and security and Confidence Building Measures (CBMs).

Basically the Pakistani Home Secretary came to India and enjoyed his time with good outing and parties so it is time for the Pakistani's to repay the favor. Every body knows nothing ever is going to come out of these talks but both sides humor each other.
