November 14, 2006 12:03 IST
Kickstarting the fourth round of the Composite Dialogue Process, India and Pakistan began their Foreign Secretary-level talks in New Delhi on Tuesday morning to narrow down differences on a host of issues including terrorism.
Foreign Secretary Shiv Shankar Menon met his Pakistani conterpart Riaz Mohammad Khan at the majestic Hyderabad House and shook hands before they started on what will be two days of hectic deliberations.
The two sides are expected to give shape to the joint mechanism on terrorism, which was proposed at the meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf at Havana on the sidelines of the NAM Summit in September.
