Earlier this month, India and Pakistan resumed Foreign Secretary-level talks, seven months after they were called off over a meet between the latter's envoy to New Delhi and Kashmiri separatist leaders.

India had cancelled FS-level talks because the Pakistan High Commissioner in New Delhi held consultations with Kashmiri separatists. However, last month, using cricket diplomacy Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to Sharif and also told him about Jaishankar's "SAARC yatra".

Earlier this month, Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar had travelled to Pakistan as part of his SAARC Yatra and met Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif among others.
