NEW DELHI: Amid growing signs of Islamabad moving against Maulana Masood Azhar and other leaders of Jaish-e-Mohammed who plotted the terror attack on Pathankot, India-Pakistan talks appear to be on track though they have been pushed back by a few days.

India announced on Thursday that both countries had decided to reschedule the foreign secretary talks “in the very near future”, heaping praise on Pakistan for its actions against the JeM as an “important and positive first step”. Foreign secretary S Jaishankar spoke to his Pakistani counterpart Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhury on Thursday morning to look for a second date for the talks.
