Foreign Ministers of India and Pakistan will meet in New York on September 27 when Islamabad's commitment and action against terror emanating from its soil will come under review.

Pakistan's action against perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks will top the agenda of the meeting, which will take place on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, the first high-level contact between the two countries after the meeting between their Prime Ministers in July.

To prepare ground for the meeting, Foreign Secretaries of both the countries will meet on September 26 during which Salman Bashir will discuss with his Indian counterpart Nirupama Rao all issues between the two countries, including terrorism and the "core issue" of Kashmir.

"The Foreign Secretaries meeting is being held in accordance with the decisions made during the talks between the Prime Ministers of Pakistan and India at Sharm el-Sheikh in July," Pakistan Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir said.

"All the issues between the two countries, including terrorism and the core issue of Jammu and Kashmir, will be discussed in these meetings," he told state-run APP, when asked about the agenda for the two meetings.
