National Security Advisor M.K. Narayanan on Monday conveyed his concern over the recent spurt in ceasefire violations and the July attack on the Indian embassy in Kabul with his Pakistan counterpart Mahmud Ali Durrani.

Durrani is on a five-day visit to India.

The Kabul attack was taken up — for which there is evidence to suggest ISI’s the involvement — to stress the point that such incidents could be a setback to the peace process.

Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon, who will be meeting Durrani on Tuesday, said: “We will discuss all issues that concern us. Naturally, that includes what happened in Kabul, the situation in terms of maintaining ceasefire,” he said.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had first raised the issue of the attack on the Indian embassy with his Pakistani counterpart Yusuf Raza Gilani in Colombo on the sidelines of SAARC in August.

Gilani had promised to hold an internal inquiry to ascertain whether or not ISI was involved.
