India-Pakistan talks to figure in Sharif-Obama meet


Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will discuss the stalled India-Pakistan dialogue with US President Barack Obama during their meeting on 22 October, Sartaj Aziz, adviser to the PM on foreign affairs and national security, has said.

“A number of other issues would also be discussed between the US president and Sharif,” Dawn quoted Aziz.

Aziz said the dossier alleging Indian involvement in subversive activities in Pakistan, which was given to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon last month, would also be shared with other friendly countries.

The comments come after the Delhi-bound Samjhauta Express, carrying both Indian and Pakistani passengers, was recently called back from the Wagah border to the Lahore railway station after Indian authorities cautioned their Pakistani counterparts of disruptive farmers protests in India’s Punjab province.
