New Delhi, Jul 27: S M Krishna, the Foreign Minister of India has expressed his happiness over the way the Indo-Pak talks have progressed but said that there is no major benefit from the recently concluded meeting between the External Affairs meeting of the two countries.

As usual, no Indo-Pak talk is complete without the concerns on terrorism and that according to Krishna remains the biggest threat to the two countries. Speaking with the media, Krishna said, "Terrorism poses continuing threat to peace and security. We have reiterated our commitment to fight this scourge in all its forms and agreed to strengthen counter-terrorism to bring those responsible for terror crimes to justice."

The minister also informed that Kashmir was discussed in the meeting and said that efforts are on to find a "peaceful solution" to the issue.

Hina Rabbani Khar, the Pakistani foreign minister too sounded upbeat about the meeting and called for the continuation of the talks so that peace returns to the region. She said, "We need to continue with this process and make this engagement a result oriented one."

And added, "Listening carefully to each others and giving serious consideratioin to ideas and proposals that are on the table, I am confident of the future course of our relations that need to be normalised."

The next round of talks between the foreign ministers of both the countries is slated to be held sometime in early 2012.
