Pakistani foreign secretary arrives for talksJuly 3rd, 2012 - 4:18 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, July 3 (IANS) Pakistan Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani Tuesday arrived here, saying he has been given the mandate to carry forward the dialogue process with India, and underlined that Islamabad will support New Delhi in its fight against terrorism.
“Pakistan will support India in its fight against terrorism,” said Jilani.
Jilani stressed that he has been given the mandate by the Pakistan government to push forward the dialogue process with India which was revived only in February last year after a long hiatus following the Mumbai terror strike.
Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai and Jilani will begin two-day talks Wednesday that will focus on issues like peace and security, including confidence-building measures, Jammu and Kashmir, and the promotion of friendly exchanges.
The agenda of the foreign-secretary talks had been fixed well in advance, but in the wake of the disclosures made by Abu Jindal, an Indian key 26/11 plotter with links to Pakistani militants, terrorism could become the main focus of the talks.
