New Delhi, Nov 24 (UNI) Pakistan Foreign Minister Maqdoom Shah Mohammed Qureshi will hold another round of peace talks here with External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee on November 26, three days after Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari announced 'no-first-use' of nuclear weapons against India.

The Pakistan Foreign Minister will arrive here on a four-day official visit to carry forward the peace process.

Mr Zardari had announced at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit here on Saturday 'no-first-use' of nuclear weapons against India. He had also proposed a South Asia Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and declared a 'hands-off' policy on Kashmir.

The External Affairs Ministry today announced that Mr Qureshi who will be visiting India from November 26-29, will also travel to Chandigarh, Jaipur and Ajmer.

In Chandigarh, he will attend a seminar on the subject of 'Cooperative Development, Peace and Security in South Asia'.

'On November 26, he will hold talks with Mr Pranab Mukherjee,'' the External Affairs Ministry said.

It said that on November 27, he will accompany Mr Mukherjee to Chandigarh to jointly participate in the seminar.

On November 28, Mr Qureshi will visit Jaipur and Ajmer and return to Delhi for meetings which he could not have during his last visit to India in June.

Mr Qureshi who had visited India in June, had to cut short his visit and return because of the death of a close relative back home.

The two countries held a special meeting of the Joint Anti-Terror Mechanism last month.
