Indian and Pakistan Foreign Ministers to meet on July 27
SM Krishna, Indian Foreign Minister would be engaged in bilateral talks with Pakistan Foreign Minister, Hina Rabbani Khar, on July 27 in New Delhi. They would be discussing about confidence-building measures, terrorism and the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

INDIAN FOREIGN Minister, SM Krishna and Pakistan Foreign Minister, Hina Rabbani Khar is set to meet in New Delhi on July 27, which would primarily be focussing on confidence-building measures to resolve the Kashmir issue. The talks between the two nations would also include terrorism, which has been a long-debated issue along with other issues such as the 2008 Mumbai attack.

It was in the year 2010 that these two countries were involved in bilateral talks. After the Mumbai attacks, India had decided to put their diplomatic ties with Pakistan on hold. India wanted Pakistan to put a serious check over the militants, who were involved in various terrorist attacks.

It is for the first time that Pakistan has such a young female Foreign Minister in their ranks as she is just 34-years-old, which also makes her the first female Foreign Minister for Pakistan. She is expected to arrive in India’s capital, Delhi tomorrow. She was designated as their Foreign Minister on July 19.

When talks take place between these countries on Wednesday, they may decide to open up trade relations between the two countries through the Line of Control too.

The Indians have not still forgotten the Mumbai attacks so they want the people who were involved in the attack to be punished. The Indians would be pushing over this issue. Still, experts in Indo-Pak relations say they don't expect a major kind of breakthrough in the bilateral talks.

It would be interesting to see what kind of stance Pakistan would be taking over Terrorism, as Rehman Malik, Pakistan’s Interior Minister, recently said that various kind of collective measures should be taken, to check upon the growing threat of terrorism.
