External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on Sunday declined to comment on the fate of the February 25 Foreign Secretary-level talks between India and Pakistan in the wake of the Pune bomb blast.
"I am not going to talk about the talks right now. Let us wait for the report (of the investigative agencies) first,"
Krishna told reportersin Chennai when asked whether the Pune blast would have any impact on the dialogue.
Terming the blast as "most tragic and unfortunate", Krishna said, "We will resist the forces of terrorism
resolutely and with firmness and determination."
He said, "We are well aware that the dark forces of terrorism are against peace and amity between nations. It is
most tragic and unfortunate that they have struck again leading to a loss of innocent lives."
An improvised explosive device, kept in a packet outside the kitchen of the popular German bakery in Pune, exploded at around 1930 hours last night when a waiter attempted to open it, killing nine persons and injuring 57 others.
