Indo-Pak foreign secretary level talks are “intact”, says Sartaj Aziz

New Delhi: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on Saturday said that Indo-Pak foreign secretary level talks, scheduled for January 15, are “intact”.

“Let me tell you the talks are intact and will take place as per schedule,” he said at a function in National College of Arts Lahore.

Replying to a question on the progress achieved by Pakistan on the leads provided by India, Aziz said, “We are investigating the Pathankot incident.”

Earlier, Pakistan had that it needed “concrete evidence” from India for acting against the terrorists it suspected of being involved in the Pathankot terror attacks.

"We are expecting evidence beyond leads and information to proceed as per our law," Dawn quoted a foreign office official as saying after Sharif chaired a second meeting of his security aides on the Pathankot attack yesterday.

A group of heavily armed terrorists struck at the Pathankot airbase on January 2, killing 7 officers and injuring 20 others. All the six terrorists were neutralized after over 100 hours of combing operation.

India alleges that the attack was carried out by terror outfit Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (Pok) based Jiash-e-Mohommad.
