Ind, Pak foreign secretaries to meet
New Delhi, July 24: India and Pakistan foreign secretaries will be meeting in Islamabad next month. This is the first meeting of the foreign secretaries in two years.

The last time the foreign secretaries had met was in 2012 in Islamabad. This is seen as an innovative effort by the Narendra Modi government after the former invited Pak PM for his swearing in ceremony in a bid to improve India's relation with Pakistan.

The meeting is likely to be held on August 25 between India's foreign secretary Sujatha Singh and her Pakistani counterpart Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry.

MEA Spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said: "It is almost two months since the Prime Ministers agreed that the foreign secretaries will keep in touch and explore how to move forward." He then said that the foreign secretaries had a telephonic conversation.

"During the conversation they agreed to meet on August 25," he said.
