India confirms NSAs met in Bangkok

Kumar reaffirmed India's stand that terror and talks can not go together.

The Government feels that though terror and talks (Comprehensive Bilateral Dialogue) can not go together, it will not mind discussing issues pertaining to terrorism through various mechanisms. "India and Pakistan have a dialogue process and we have said terror and talks can not go together".

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

A senior Pakistan's national security division official had last week said that "the meeting was good and that Doval's tone and tenor was friendly and positive".

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. 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 meeting also took place just one day after the wife and mother of imprisoned former Indian naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav had met him in Islamabad.

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.

During the meeting, Janjua reported raised the issue of targeting of civilians along the Line of Control while Doval spoke of infiltration. 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 is learnt to have taken place in Bangkok on December 26.

Pakistan's handling of terrorists, with 26/11 terror attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed being freed from police custody and attempting to join mainstream politics, and Lashkar-e-Taiba operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi remaining out on bail, is also assumed to have figured in the conversation.
