A new dimension has been given to Indo-Pak talks in Bangkok on Sunday after it got a major push by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Climate Summit in Paris last week. During the summit, Indian Prime Minister Modi met his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif for 160 seconds. Both leaders decided to move ahead, break the deadlock between two nations and restore peace in Asian region.
As per media reports, NSAs of India and Pakistan, Ajit Doval and Naseer Janjua, held discussion on all the topics including terrorism and Kashmir. It is noteworthy that, last time the NSA level talks were called off over role of separatist groups in New Delhi.
As it was clearly evident that Pakistan wants to include the separatists into the dialogue process which was not raised during UFA summit by the meeting between Modi and Sharif, which apparently to be the foundation stone for the talks initiation between the two nations.
However, after the duo countries have found a platform to move ahead to break the deadlock over peace process. Back home, the move was welcomed by some parties but Congress, that slammed the central government for holding talks with Pakistan secretly.
Going one more step ahead towards peace process, Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will be visiting Pakistan to hold talks with the Pakistani Prime Minister, which was a result of the NSA level talks took place in Bangkok on Sunday.
