We Want to Resolve All Issues with India Says Pakistan’s Aizaz Chaudhry

Foreign Secretaries of India and Pakistan on Tuesday (April 26) held bilateral talks focusing on a range of sticky issues including Pathankot terror attack probe, the first such formal meeting between the two top diplomats after talks were deferred in January following the strike by Pakistani terrorists. Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar and his Pakistani counterpart Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry are also believed to have deliberated on ways to take forward the Comprehensive Bilateral Dialogue (CBD) which has been stagnant. India has been pressing for action against terrorists responsible for the audacious attack on the premier IAF base, to move ahead in the talks. “Another important bilateral for Foreign Secretary as he meets with his Pakistan counterpart Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry,” tweeted External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup. The Pakistan Foreign Secretary is here on a day-long visit to attend the ‘Senior Officials Meeting of the Heart of Asia – Istanbul Process’. Jaishankar is understood to have raised the issue of investigation into the Pathankot terror strike. This is also the first formal meeting between Jaishankar and Chaudhry after the announcement of CBD by the Foreign Ministers in Islamabad last December. The two secretaries had a informal brief interaction during a SAARC meeting in Nepal in March this year. The efforts to resume CBD at the Foreign Secretary-level hit a deadlock after the terrorist attack on the Pathankot airbase in January that India said was carried out by militants from Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad terror group.
