India on Sunday conveyed to Pakistan its serious concerns about terror groups in that country and demanded concrete and effective steps against these entities.

“We told Pakistan that India still has serious concerns about terror groups there and underlined the need for concrete and effective steps against these entities,” External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna told reporters after a two-hour meeting here with his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi.

During what he described as a “useful, candid and constructive” meeting, India also told Pakistan that any meaningful dialogue process needs an environment free from violence.

The issue of Balochistan did not come up during the meeting, he said.

Ahead of Sunday’s talks, Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao and her Pakistani counterpart Bashir Malik had held a preparatory round here on Saturday.
