With cricket diplomacy imparting a fresh lease of life to Indo-Pak ties, foreign secretary Nirupama Rao said the “possibility” of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh visiting Pakistan “exists”, but the timing is not decided.

Rao, in Karan Thapar’s India Tonight programme on CNBC TV 18, however, said, “I would put it this way. I think the possibility exists. I do not rule out the possibility of a visit. As far as timing is concerned, it is not decided. Thirdly I would like to say there is a lot of preparatory work that still needs to be completed before we can have such a visit,” she said.

Rao maintained the wounds of the Mumbai terror attack have not healed and stressed on Islamabad taking with “utmost seriousness” its request for voice samples of the 26/11 accused.”…The wounds of 26/11 have not healed as yet. I think we would do wrong to the people who lost their lives and the families that continue to grieve as a result of what happened so tragically in Mumbai, if we were to say that 26/11 is behind us,” Rao said.
