Play on words over NSA talks

  • NSA Ajit Doval met Pakistani counterpart in Thailand: MEA

Pakistan has maintained high-level diplomatic contacts with the Indian establishment, an Indian Express report said on January 3.

FATF is an inter-governmental body established with an objective to set standards and promote effective implementation of legal, regulatory and operational measures to combat money laundering and terrorist financing.

"I am agreeing that talks took place and our issue was eliminating terrorism from the region".

Responding to questions at the weekly briefing, the Ministry of External Affairs' official spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said on Thursday, "India and Pakistan have a dialogue process and we have said terror and talks can not go together".

Asserting that talks on terror with Pakistan can definitely go ahead, provided it denounces terror, the Ministry of External Affairs today confirmed that an NSA level talks between the two nations took place last month.

Could Prince Harry SNUB brother William as best man?
Meghan's social accounts were a treasure trove of tips on being your best you, with inspirational quotes and tips. Her last Instagram post was a farewell to The Tig , which she shut down in April a year ago .

When this question was posed to Kumar at the regular MEA briefing, the spokesperson said dates of such meetings are fixed days in advance.

"Similarly, the NSA-level engagement is part of operational-level talks". The very fact that the two NSAs had to meet in Bangkok bears testimony to this. The report, on December 31, said that while the meeting was held a day after retired Naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav, who is on Death Row in Pakistan, met his wife and mother in Islamabad, it was "pre-scheduled" and not linked to Pakistan's treatment of Jadhav's family.

The composite dialogue process has been stalled since August 2014 when India called off foreign secretary-level talks. The MEA official made it clear that these mechanisms are not part of the structured CBD that was announced between the two countries during External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's visit to Islamabad in 2015.

The "talks on terror" model to engage Pakistan is a break in India's position that India had taken following the attack on the Pathankot airbase when New Delhi had cancelled the Comprehensive Bilateral Dialogue (CBD).
