Hoping that the coming Indo-Pak foreign minister-level talks will bring good results, Pakistani high commissioner to India Salman Bashir has said terrorism was a global issue now and Pakistan was serious in fighting it. The foreign ministers of India and Pakistan are scheduled to meet on September 8.


Bashir was talking to mediapersons after paying obeisance at Harmandar Sahib.

To a question that why Pakistan was still not arresting the Mumbai attack culprits, Bashir said, "Pakistan is also suffering due to terrorism and there was need for a strategy at the global level to find a solution to this problem. Pakistan is very sincere in helping India and its sincerity should not be doubted."

Bashir, who pinned high hopes on the coming dialogue, said, "During the foreign minister-level dialogue, Pakistan is going to float new visa policy. There will be a relaxed visa regime, which will not only help tourism but also give boost to business."

To a question regarding migration of Pakistani Hindus to India, Bashir said, "Minorities were safe in Pakistan. This is a false propaganda."
