India, Pakistan NSAs held meeting, confirms MEA spokesperson, says talks on terror can go ahead

NSA Ajit Doval met Pakistani counterpart in Thailand: MEA

Clearing the air on the NSA talks, Raveesh said the NSA talks were part of the various mechanisms established between India and Pakistan to talk about specific issues. The external affairs ministry said: "The focus of the talks was on terror, cross-border terrorism".

Our position is clear, dialogue and terrorism can not go together, the official stressed, referring to the systematic Indian accusations against its neighbor for the support of Islamabad to extremist groups in the Kashmir region.

The meeting took place in Bangkok on December 26, a day after ex-Indian Navy official Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav, who is languishing in Pak custody, met his mother and wife in Islamabad. "I agree that talks took place", MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar told reporters at a press conference.

The MEA said the talks were part of "operational-level talks".


The two women were humiliated and harassed by Pakistani diplomats and the media.

India has planned to intensify its pressure on Pakistan to take strong steps against terror financing during the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) plenary organized in Paris, next month, reported The Economic Times quoting people familiar with the development.

The Indian government confirmed today a recent secret meeting between senior officials of this country and Pakistan in Thailand to address several conflictive issues.

He highlighted that during the meeting of over two hours New Delhi raised the issue of the infiltration of separatist militiamen from across the border. The very fact that the two NSAs had to meet in Bangkok bears testimony to this. CBD was launched by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj during her visit to Islamabad on 9 December 2015.
