External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on Monday indicated that the next round of foreign secretary-level talks between India and Pakistan would take place in Islamabad.
“The foreign secretary of Pakistan came here for the talks. So, perhaps it is the turn of Indian foreign secretary to go to Pakistan,” External Affairs Minister S M Krishna said here on the sidelines of the India-Africa conclave.
When the foreign secretaries of two countries met on February 25 in New Delhi, Salman Bashir had invited his Indian counterpart to Islamabad, which was accepted.
“Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has taken an initiative in good faith to hold foreign secretary-level talks.” Asked if Singh would meet his Pakistani counterpart in Washington in April on the sidelines of the nuclear security summit, the minister was non-committal.
