Foreign Secretary-level talks between Pakistan and India will be held from June 23-24 in Islamabad, Foreign Office announced on Friday. Foreign Office Spokesperson Tehmina Janjua said that the foreign secretaries of India and Pakistan will meet in Islamabad on June 23 and 24 to discuss peace and security, confidence building measures (CBMs), Friendly Exchange Programme and Kashmir.
The meeting will also take stock of the progress made by India and Pakistan during series of parleys held at senior levels on various issues such as security, water, trade and commerce.
This will be the first such interaction since the two foreign secretaries, Salman Bashir and his counterpart Nirpuma Rao, met in February in Thimphu, Bhutan. The upcoming meeting would be the most crucial interaction since resumption of the full-spectrum dialogue, and would be decisive in paving way for the meeting of the foreign ministers of the two countries that is likely to be held next month.
