New Delhi, Jul 18 (UNI) India will raise the issue of the alleged involvement of Pakistan's ISI in the terrorist attack on Indian embassy in Kabul when the Foreign Secretaries of the two countries meet here on July 21 to launch the fifth round of the Composite Dialogue Process (CDP).

Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon will meet his Pakistani counterpart Salman Bashir on July 21 to launch the fifth round of the CDP between the two countries and discuss issues including Jammu and Kashmir and Peace and Security and Confidence-Building Measures (CBMs).

The talks between the two Foreign Secretaries will be held almost a month after External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee held discussions with Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi here on June 27.

The two sides had resolved to defeat the ''common threat of terrorism'' and agreed to strengthen trade and economic relations.

The Foreign Secretary-level talks also follow the meeting of the India-Pakistan Technical Working Group on Cross-LOC CBMs held in Islamabad today to concretize decisions regarding bus services, trade and truck services across the LoC announced in May.
