New Delhi, July 4 (IANS) Amid new disclosures on 26/11 plotter Abu Jindal’s links with Pakistani terrorists and state actors, the foreign secretaries of India and Pakistan Wednesday began two-day talks that will focus on peace and security and Jammu and Kashmir.
The Indian delegation is being led by Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai and comprises, among others, Y.K. Sinha, joint secretary in charge of Pakistan in the external affairs ministry, and Syed Akbaruddin, the ministry’s spokesperson.
The Pakistani delegation is led by Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani and comprises senior officials of Pakistan’s foreign office.
The agenda of the foreign secretary talks had been fixed well in advance but terrorism is set to become the main focus in the wake of the disclosures made by Abu Jindal, an Indian 26/11 plotter with suspected links to Pakistani militants and Pakistani state actors.
At the talks, India is expected to share a dossier on Abu Jindal, including a copy of his passport and identity card, said informed sources.
