Swaraj was addressing a press conference over the fate of NSA level talk after Pakistan NSA Sartaj Aziz said at a press conference in Islamabad today that he is still prepared to hold talks with his counterpart Ajit Doval without any pre-conditions.

Aziz's press conference comes soon after a Kashmiri separatist leader Shabir Shah was detained by the Delhi police upon his arrival in New Delhi. Shah, the separatist leader, had come to New Delhi for the scheduled reception with Aziz.
