The trial of LeT's Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and six other suspects in Mumbai attacks and Pakistan's proposal to form a commission that would visit India to record testimony of two key witnesses figured prominently in the telephonic talks Interior Minister Rehman Malik had with his Indian counterpart P Chidambaram.

"We discussed security issues and the ongoing trial here in Pakistan, of those accused in the Mumbai blast," Malik wrote on Twitter, a social networking website.

The Pakistani minister proposed that a Commission may be formed to visit India to record the testimony of two key Indian witnesses for taking forward the trial of the seven Pakistani suspects.

"I also proposed that a Commission may be formed to visit India and record the statements of the witnesses... I explained to Mr Chidambaram that the appearance of two main Indian witnesses in Pakistani Court is important for trial to continue here," he wrote.

Malik, also "appreciated" the sympathy and condolences extended by Chidambaram on the loss of lives due to the floods in Pakistan.
