New Delhi, July 23: The meeting of the National Security Advisors of India and Pakistan is expected to be a power packed affair. Will terror be delinked from the talks? The answer is no and sources inform that unless Pakistan does not do its bit to at least show that it is serious about tackling terror, it would be very difficult to come to any agreement.
While National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval will put forth a host of issues during the talks, he is likely to be presented a dossier from Pakistan as well.
India has already sent a host of dossiers to Pakistan in the past. However this time around Pakistan too would hand over a dossier to India spelling out certain issues ranging from Balochistan to Samjautha.
What Paksitan's NSA is expected to raise?
Pakistan's National Security Advisor, Sartaj Aziz is expected to bring up the issue of Balochistan during the talks. He is also likely to ask for the progress of the trial into the Samjautha express blasts.
India expects that Pakistan may hand over a dossier to this effect. However sources say that India does have the answers and will reply to everything that Pakistan would ask.
Pakistan has always alleged that India has been aiding the Baloch rebels. Pakistan has gone a step ahead and shifted the blame on India for the recent Peshawar attack. Indian officials however say that these are desperate tactics on part of Pakistan to divert from the real issue.
We all know who is behind the Peshawar attacks. They have created their Frankenstein Monsters and are unable to deal with them and hence are blaming India.
India has ammunition too
Doval during his talks with Aziz next month would raise a host of issues ranging from the 26/11 trial in Pakistan to violations along the Line of Control.
We have sent several dossiers and Pakistan has not bothered even looking into it, sources part of the preparations for the talks informed OneIndia. There are several other issues which India would raise.
However what must be borne in mind is that the NSA level talks do not become a boxing match and there will be every effort made to move forward in a bid to improvise relations. It is a tough task, but one needs to keep trying, the officer also informed.
What is more important is that it is these talks between the two NSA's which will pave the way for the meeting of Prime Ministers of India and Pakistan, Narendra Modi and Nawaz Sharif.
