New Delhi, July 29: The NSA level talks between India and Pakistan are on track and will take place in the month of August. The talks will go on between Ajit Doval and Sartaj Aziz as per schedule and there is no change, sources informed OneIndia.
India was expected to call off the talks in the wake of the Gurdaspur attacks as the attack emerged out of Pakistan. However sources say that they will not play into the hands of these terrorists who had aimed at derailing the talks.
Talks on schedule:
The National Security Advisors of India and Paksitan had decided to meet in August. The decision to hold the NSA level talks was taken after the Prime Ministers of India and Paksitan met at Ufa last month. It was mututally decided to sit across the table and discuss a host of issues which could lay the road map to peace.
However, after the Gurdaspur attack, it was widely believed that India may call off the talks in protest. From the minute the attack took place, it was evident that this was handiwork of Pakistan based terrorist groups.
The manner in which the attack was planned and executed showed a great deal of professionalism which suggested that some members of the establishment in Pakistan had a hand in it.
India will talk tough:
India expects to have all the evidence regarding the Gurdaspur attacks by the time the talks take place. India is working overtime on gathering as much evidence as possible regarding this attack.
Indian forces did not manage to capture any of the terrorists alive, but have ample technical evidence that the terrorists came in from Pakistan.
This attack would figure in the talks and Pakistan will be told about the never-ending attacks on Indian soil that are emerging from Pakistan.
In addition to the Gurdaspur attacks, the snail paced trial in the 26/11 attacks and also the release of Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi will be discussed. The infiltration bids and cross border violations will also be discussed.
Pakistan on the other hand also indicated that it has several questions to ask India. In Pakistan's kitty is the Samjautha blasts case and also the recent allegation that India had helped carry out the Peshawar attack.
Paksitan has also decided to question India about the recent shooting down of the drone. India had claimed that it was a drone that belonged to Pakistan. However Pakistan claims it has collected evidence to show that it was an Indian drone.
