Pakistan seeks robust dialogue with India


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan is pushing for a robust mechanism for talks with India which would be immune to isolated attacks by terrorists who are opposed to a rapprochement between the two countries.

The foreign secretaries of Pakistan and India were due to meet in mid-January after talks were announced following Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s surprise visit to Lahore in late December 2015. The officials were due to discuss measures for carrying forward the Comprehensive Bilateral Dialogue, which had been announced earlier in December 2015.
