A step forward, fingers crossed: JeM chief Masood Azhar, brother detained; group’s offices sealed in Pakistan


With Pakistan cracking down on the Jaish-e-Muhammad, India said Wednesday that a final decision on the proposed Foreign Secretary-level talks will be taken Thursday after National Security Advisor Ajit K Doval meets Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

While there are some indications that the talks may be “delayed” by a “few days or weeks” and will not take place on January 15 as planned, an official announcement is expected Thursday afternoon at the weekly briefing of the Ministry of External Affairs.
