Dates for Home Secretary-level talks with Pakistan proposed

India has proposed two sets of dates — March 21-22 and March 28-29 — to Pakistan for Home Secretary-level talks which will have counter-terrorism high on its agenda.

The progress made in Mumbai terror attacks trial and the demand for voice samples of 26/11 accused are also likely to be discussed during the talks.

Union Home Secretary Gopal K. Pillai extended the invitation to Pakistan Interior Secretary Chaudhry Qamar Zaman last week and a response from Islamabad was awaited, official sources said here on Monday.

This will be the first structured Secretary-level meeting on counter-terrorism after the recent decision by both countries to resume comprehensive dialogue on outstanding issues.
