Chennai, Feb 14: External Affairs Minister SM Krishna declined to comment on the secretary-level talks between India and Pakistan following Pune bomb attack.

Speaking to reporters, Krishna said, "I am not going to talk about the talks right now. Let us wait for the report (of the investigative agencies) first."

He was responding to a question when asked whether the Pune blast would have any impact on the dialogue.

Krishna further said, "We are well aware that the dark forces of terrorism are against peace and amity between nations. It is most tragic and unfortunate that they have struck again leading to a loss of innocent lives."

"They (terrorists) want to create fear and suspicion. They sow seeds of distress to create confusion and we will not be cowed down by the terror," he added.

The two nations had recently decided to hold the foreign secretary-level talks in New Delhi on Feb 25.

India had stopped the composite dialogue with Pakistan after the Mumbai terror attacks in 2008.
