Islamabad, Feb 7: The Pakistan Foreign Office (FO) has called on an important meeting on Feb 10 to prepare agendas for the proposed foreign secretary-level talks with India.

According to sources, the FO has summoned top officials from the Defence and Commerce ministries for the meeting.

Officials from the Indus Water Commission, the Kashmir Affairs Ministry and various security organisations are also likely to attend the meeting, The Dawn reports.

Pakistan's High Commissioner to India Shahid Malik has also been summoned from New Delhi for the high level meeting.

"The purpose of the inter-agency process is to develop a comprehensive strategy and take all stakeholders on board," The Dawn quoted a senior official, as saying.

Earlier, Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao had called her Pakistani counterpart Salman Bashir to inform about New Delhi's proposals to hold talks concerning all important issues pending before both countries.

Rao, however, clarified that the focus of the talks would be on terrorism and the prosecution of people involved in the Nov 2008 Mumbai attacks.
