Islamabad: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Tuesday met her Pakistani counterpart Sartaj Aziz at the dinner hosted for ‘Heart of Asia’ delegates.
“EAM @SushmaSwaraj welcomed by Pakistan’s Foreign Affairs Adviser Mr Sartaj Aziz at dinner for HoA delegates,” tweeted External Affairs Ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup.
She is leading the Indian delegation to attend Heart of Asia Conference in Islamabad, the two-day ministerial meeting on Afghanistan that began today.
Swaraj would also meet Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on the sidelines of the conference.
Swaraj’s visit comes two days after talks between the National Security Advisors of India and Pakistan in Bangkok, where they discussed terrorism, Jammu and Kashmir and a range of key bilateral issues apart from agreeing to carry forward the constructive engagement.
Swaraj is being accompanied by Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar, Joint Secretary in charge of the Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran (PAI) Desk Gopal Baglay and Vikas Swarup. (ANI)
