RSS on Thursday said talks between India and Pakistan would not yield any results as long as Islamabad continued its "antagonistic mindset" towards India.

"Pakistan has a continuous antagonistic mindset towards India. Unless that attitude is changed, talks will never be fruitful", RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said when asked about the Foreign Secretary level talks between India and Pakistan.

"For the success of talks, the situation does not matter. The mindset matters more. India has always offered readiness for talks. But Pakistan has adopted an approach that it can not live with Bharat," Bhagawat said at a press meet in Thiruvananthapuram.

"Pakistan should change this mindset, then it will be beneficial to them also," he said.

Voicing concern over infiltration from across the border, he said effective steps should be taken to prevent it, since this was a matter of national security.

On beheading of two Sikhs by Taliban in Pakistan, Bhagwat accused the Indian government of not taking effective steps to protect people of Indian origin in other countries.

"There is a general complaint abroad that our Government is not doing enough to protect NRIs. The Government should do more on that," he said.
