Indian High Commissioner back in Islamabad, to articulate India’s expectation from Pak more directly

Islamabad: Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria reached Islamabad on Saturday and will resume office soon, sources told ANI.

Bisaria, who had been recalled to New Delhi for consultations last month following the Pulwama terror attack, will articulate India’s expectations from Pakistan with emphasis and more directly, sources added.

The Indian High Commissioner will also engage on urgent issues not only with Pakistan but with diplomats of other countries in Islamabad.

Bisaria who had been recalled to New Delhi last month returned to Islamabad upon the completion of consultations in India.

Meanwhile, Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India, Sohail Mahmood, is also expected to reach New Delhi on Saturday.
Pakistan too had recalled Mahmood to Islamabad for consultations on February 18.

Tensions have been high between the two neighbours following the Pulwama attack for which Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility.
