"Good to see that in spite of the rants on TV & the trolls on Twitter @rajnathsingh will travel to Pakistan. We need to remain engaged," tweeted Abdullah.

Amid tension over violence in Kashmir, Home Minister Rajnath Singh is scheduled to travel to Pakistan to attend the Saarc Home/Interior Ministers Conference in August.

In the meeting, scheduled on August 3 and 4, Rajnath Singh would raise the issue of cross-border terrorism.

The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) leadership had agreed in 2005 during the 13th Summit in Dhaka that Home/Interior Ministers of the Saarc nations may meet annually to strengthen cooperation in the area of counter-terrorism.

The first meeting of Home/Interior Ministers was held in Dhaka on May 11, 2006.
