India must fix dates for foreign secretary talks soonest: Pakistan

Islamabad, Feb 18 (IANS) Islamabad on Thursday urged New Delhi to finalise the dates of foreign secretary-level talks as early as possible following the Indian policy statement “not to link talks with the progress on Pathankot attack”.

Both the sides are in contact on the issue, but no date has yet been fixed, Foreign Office Spokesperson Muhammad Nafees Zakria said here.

On January 14, India and Pakistan agreed to reschedule talks between their foreign secretaries while an investigation into a deadly attack on a military base in Pathankot was being carried out.

India has demanded action against the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad that it suspects of carrying out the January 2 attack on the Pathankot air base.
