Indo-Pak FS talks may resume after PM-Prez meet
On Board Air India One, Sept 12: India and Pakistan may well resume the stalled Foreign Secretary level talks if the upcoming meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Pervez Musharraf in Havana later this week goes off well.
Senior officials accompanying the Prime Minister on his trip to Brazil and Cuba indicated that a successful outcome of the meeting between the two leaders could result in the top officials of the two countries holding talks in the near future.
The Prime Minister is expected to forcefully convey to Gen Musharraf India's concerns over Islamabad's continuing support to cross-border terrorism.
The dialogue between the two countries has been stalled since July 11 when Mumbai was rocked by serial bomb blasts in trains, which claimed more than 180 lives.
Dr Singh has repeatedly stated that it would be difficult to pursue the bilateral dialogue if Pakistan did not rein in the 'jehadi' elements carrying out terror attacks in India from its soil.
