India, Pakistan foreign secretaries to meet on August 25

Wednesday, 23 July 2014 - 6:59pm IST | Agency: PTI

Foreign Secretaries of India and Pakistani will meet on August 25 in Islamabad to discuss the way forward in bilateral ties, which have made no headway since the interruption of dialogue process nearly two years ago.

A simultaneous announcement about the meeting was made from New Delhi and Islamabad today after Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh and her Pakistani counterpart Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry had a telephonic conversation.

An understanding that the Foreign Secretaries of the two countries will be in touch to see how to move forward on bilateral relations had been reached during the visit of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif here in May to attend the swearing-in of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The two leaders had a "constructive" bilateral meeting for 45 minutes, a day after the ceremony.
