Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao on Thursday said that India was not in a hurry to revive talks with Pakistan and no meeting was scheduled between the prime ministers of the two countries next week in Bhutan - until Islamabad showed some movement in punishing Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed.

"Dialogue is always useful, especially in the relations between India and Pakistan," Rao told reporters, but added that no formal meeting has been scheduled on the sidelines of the SAARC summit next week.

"The situation has not really changed. We need action in terms of movement on the Mumbai terror attacks," Rao said to a question on whether there was a change in situation from the time that foreign secretaries of both countries met in Delhi Feb 25.

She also said that Pakistan has yet to give any response or feedback on the three dossiers that India handed over at the meeting between their foreign secretaries.

She noted that the "level of infiltration has been a cause of concern in the last few months".

"The infrastructure of terrorism and activities of terror groups operating from the territory of Pakistan is a cause of serious concern," added Rao.
