Pak hopes for ‘common ground’ at foreign secy talks with India

A day after it was decided that the two nations’ foreign secretaries would meet here to discuss the way forward in bilateral relations, Pakistan Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry said that the upcoming meeting on August 25 will help to carry forward the dialogue process.

He said both countries were engaged at multiple levels to improve bilateral ties and address outstanding issues.

‘It will be our desire to work together where we find common ground and common benefit and to resolve differences where we have disagreements and disputes,’ Chaudhry said.

Chaudhry said that his Indian counterpart Sujatha Singh during a telephonic conversation on Wednesday raised the issue of infiltration attempts from the Pakistan side.

‘My response was that we have accurate information from Military Operations Directorate about the exact fire that was received by our posts from across the LoC. Our troops fired only in response. We do not accept that there were any infiltration attempts,’ he said at a press briefing here in the capital.
