Talks on terrorism can go ahead with Pakistan

The external affairs ministry said: "The focus of the talks was on terror, cross-border terrorism". He said India used the opportunity to raise the issue of cross border terrorism, infiltration and safe sanctuaries for terrorists along the border with Pakistan.

"The global body then asked Pakistan to report in February (this year) on actions taken by Islamabad against terror outfits, as per the report".

The two women had on December 25 met the former Indian naval officer who Pakistan says is a spy - an allegation India denies - from across a glass screen. However, the two countries hold regular meetings and talks between the Director Generals of Military Operations, Director Generals of Border Security Force-Pakistan Rangers, Indus Water Commissioners and the NSAs.

The Doval-Janjua talks came just a day after Pakistan allowed former Indian Naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav, who is now in a jail in Islamabad, to meet his wife and mother.

"Similarly, the NSA-level engagement is part of operational-level talks".

No. 17 Arizona blows past Oregon State
The Beavers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 versus the Pac-12 and 0-4 ATS in their last four games following a straight-up win. It was the first time the Ducks (12-5, 2-2 Pac-12) have beaten a Top 15 team on the road since 2007 when it won at Arizona .

"We have said terror and talks can't go together but talks on terror can definitely go ahead", he opined.

Kumar also stated that these operational-level mechanisms do take place.

Pakistani-based Dawn quoted officials as saying the meeting between the two NSAs as "good" and "useful". Janjua is believed to have raised the issue of unrest in Kashmir, besides alleged targeting of civilians in villages along the LoC in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).

The meeting between the two NSAs took place in Thailand almost three weeks ago.

Another problem addressed was the recent release in Pakistan of Hafiz Saeed, mastermind of the terrorist attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai in 2008, causing over 160 deaths.
