Official sources pointed out that while there had been meetings between Indian and Pakistani officials, this was the first interaction at the level of a Minister since the Agra summit.
In what appeared to be a new tack, Mr. Sinha ``drew attention'' to the need for Pakistan to ``cooperate with India'' in dealing with terrorism at his meeting with Mr. Khan.
``He (Mr. Sinha) also expressed his confidence that the Government of Pakistan would make the necessary effort to prevent these terrorists from derailing the present process (of contact between the two countries),'' the Foreign Office spokesman said about the meeting.
