Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is likely to meet Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf during the NAM Summit in Havana in mid-September and convey India's strong concerns over cross-border terrorism and discuss ways to move the stalled peace process.
"There is a possibility of a bilateral meeting between the Prime Minister and President Musharraf," National Security Adviser MK Narayanan told reporters in New Delhi, but did not elaborate.
Asked what would be the basic issues raised by Singh, he said, "The concerns we have. Terrorism, of course."
"How to take the peace process forward" will be another issue that is expected to come up.
The peace process was disrupted in the wake of the Mumbai blasts in July this year when Foreign Secretary-level talks were put off.
The Prime Minister had recently said that the Indo-Pak peace process cannot move forward unless cross-border terrorism stopped.
