NEW DELHI JULY 26. Progress in reducing tensions between India and Pakistan had to be "sequential''— if Pakistan did more to curb cross-border terrorism then the Indian response would be positive.

Spelling out such a scenario at a press conference here this evening, the visiting European Union's High Representative for a Common Foreign and Security Policy, Javier Solana, came close to accepting India's position that Islamabad needed to do more before New Delhi could begin normalising relations with Pakistan. For its part, India told Mr. Solana that Pakistan had reneged on its pledge to the international community that it would put an end to cross-border terrorism.
