Rajnath Singh to visit Pakistan for Saarc Home Ministers meet

New Delhi, July 28 (IANS) Amid tension over violence in Kashmir, Home Minister Rajnath Singh is scheduled to travel to Pakistan to attend the Saarc Home/Interior Ministers Conference in August, official sources confirmed on Thursday.

In the meeting, scheduled on August 3 and 4, Rajnath Singh would raise the issue of cross-border terrorism.

The Home Minister has already pointed fingers at Pakistan for stoking unrest in Kashmir where a wave of violence, following the killing on July 8 of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, has claimed about 50 lives and left thousands injured.

The South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) leadership had agreed in 2005 during the 13th Summit in Dhaka that Home/Interior Ministers of the Saarc nations may meet annually to strengthen cooperation in the area of counter-terrorism.

The first meeting of Home/Interior Ministers was held in Dhaka on May 11, 2006.
