India voices terror concerns with Pak

K J M Varma in Islamabad | May 31, 2006 00:14 IST

India on Tuesday conveyed to Pakistan its concerns over increasing terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir as well as the rest of the country. A large chunk of the talks held between the Home Secretaries of the two countries were confined mostly to terrorism, with India forthrightly conveying its concerns over growing attacks in Jammu and Kashmir as well as rest of the country, officials said.

New Delhi also expressed reservations over Pakistan's claims of a crackdown on the banned Jihadi militant group Lashkar-e-Tayiba, they said. The talks covered several other issues, including drug trafficking and prisoner related matters. Emerging from the first round of talks with his Pakistani counterpart Sayed Kamal Shah, Indian Home Secretary V K Duggal told reporters that there is a movement forward on all issues, including terrorism.

"If one is looking at step by step progress, it is yes. The issues are fairly complicated. But if you are looking at were the talks, successful, yes, we have moved a few steps forward. We spent three hours on all the issues and here is a movement forward," Duggal said.

In his comments, Shah said, "The talks were held in a very friendly and cordial atmosphere. Both sides were forthright and candid in expressing their views and we also showed great commitment and resolve to address those issues raised by both the countries and address them with a view to resolve them."
