NEW DELHI: India and Pakistan have not been able to agree upon a “mutually convenient” date for foreign secretary-level talks so far even as New Delhi on Thursday asserted that Mumbai attack case trial was a “test” of Pakistan’s sincerity in combating terrorism directed against the country.
“As of now, we don’t have a mutually convenient date,” external affairs ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.
He was asked about the status of India-Pakistan foreign secretaries-level talks and reported remarks of Pakistan high commissioner Abdul Basit during an interview here on the possibility of the parleys in the first week of February.
On the progress of probe by Pakistan in Pathankot terror strike, he said the two governments were in “continuous communication” regarding the matter but refused to give any further details.
