India today said that terror outfits in Pakistan will be the main concern of the country in the upcoming Foreign Secretary-level talks, adding that terrorist camps along the borders in that country were “still active“

“All the 32 (terrorist camps in Pakistan) near their border are active even now. This year, the number of infiltration attempts has also gone up. All the terror outfits are still active and that is our main concern,” Defence Minister A.K. Antony said.

Mr. Antony, however, refused to speculate on the possible outcome of the talks.

“It is a considered decision of the government to have Foreign Secretary-level talks with Pakistan. There is nothing wrong in that. Everything will now depend on the outcome of the talks,” he told reporters here, when asked why talks were being held with Pakistan when it had not stopped aiding terrorists targeting India.
