Pak to address India's concerns ahead of NAM summit

By Super Admin

Islamabad, July 6 (ANI): Pakistan has indicated that it was attaching immense importance in its meeting with India on the sidelines of Non-Aligned Movement summit in the resort of Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, and is looking to make an all out effort to address New Delhi's concerns.

Foreign secretaries' of the two countries are to hold talks on the sidelines of the July 14-15 summit.

Islamabad has indicated that it is attaching immense importance to the meetings. The foreign secretaries' talks are particularly being touted as critical for the revival of the stalled peace process.

"We are looking forward to these two important meetings and we will see what is the outcome of the foreign secretaries' meeting," said Foreign Office Spokesman Abdul Basit.

Diplomatic sources say Pakistan would be attempting to come out with a trajectory for future meetings.

India had suspended the Composite Dialogue with Pakistan following the 26/11 Mumbai terrorist strikes and since then, there has been little official contact between both sides, the Dawn reports.

Pakistan has already submitted an appeal with the Supreme Court against the release of Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed and appointed Baqir Ali Rana as judge for Rawalpindi Anti-Terrorism Court-II.

The appeal against Hafiz Saeed's release on Lahore High Court orders last month would be technically filed on Monday after the 'numbering' of petition submitted on Saturday would be done by the apex court's registrar's office.

Meanwhile, the five accused are expected to be indicted when the hearing in the case resumes on July 18.

Observers believe this step is specifically meant to address Indian concerns about JuD chief's release and the delay in prosecution of the five accused in Mumbai case because of absence of a judge in the court that was trying them. (ANI)
