All issues concerning bilateral ties, “time permitting,” will be taken up during India-Pakistan Foreign Secretary-level talks on Thursday, External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said here on Monday.
Mr. Krishna stated this while replying to a question whether India would take up the killing of two Sikhs in North-West Frontier Province.
India has maintained that while it will focus on terrorism, Pakistan can raise issues of vital concern to it at the talks which, External Affairs Ministry sources said, could last between two and two and a half hours.
Pakistan decided to expand the delegation to eight officials, all from the Foreign Office, for the talks led by its Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir. The team will arrive here on Wednesday.
