Nirupama Rao to visit Pakistan for further talks: Krishna

By Super Admin

New Delhi, Mar 15 (ANI): External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on Monday said that Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao would soon visit Pakistan for further talks.

On the sidelines of a function here, Krishna said, "We have already taken the initiative. Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh is in good faith. Provided the backdrop of having talks at the level of foreign secretary."

"The foreign secretary of Pakistan came here, and then, perhaps it is time for the foreign secretary of India to go to Pakistan," he added.

Despite talks between the two neighbours during Pakistani Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir's visit to India, nothing fruitful came out and the two sides ended the interaction with a pledge to 'keep in touch', signalling that relations between the nuclear-armed rivals remain frosty.

This was the first talk between the two countries after the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.

India had broken off talks after the Mumbai attacks, saying dialogue could resume only if Pakistan acted against militants operating from its soil.

New Delhi had put the blame on Islamabad for the attacks, which killed at least 166 people and derailed a four-year-long peace process. (ANI)
