Manmohan Singh Yekaterinburg, June 16 (ANI): Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari is likely to suggest an intelligence-sharing mechanism between Islamabad and New Delhi to the Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh during their first meeting after 26/11 in Russia.

The Daily Times quoted Indian Foreign Secretary Shiv Shankar Menon, as saying that Dr. Singh and Zardari are set to resume formal bilateral contact on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation.

Official sources, however, said this is merely an opportunity to convey the Indian government’s concerns to Pakistan at the highest level.

The meeting between the two leaders was organized after the Pakistan high commissioner in New Delhi expressed Zardari’s wish to meet Dr Singh, they added.

Dr. Singh is expected to call upon the Pakistani leadership to take credible action against terrorism.

Dialogue was being resumed in line with Dr Singh’s vision of maintaining cordial relations with all of India’s neighbours, sources added. (ANI)
