A Hockey India (HI) delegation will visit Pakistan next month to start negotiations for resuming the hockey ties that were snapped following the 2008 Mumbai attack by Pakistani terrorists.

A top source in Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) said that negotiations are on for a series on home and away basis every year.
