National security advisers of India and Pakistan are expected to meet in a neutral country in October to follow up on the meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Gen Pervez Musharraf in New York last week, an Islamabad-based daily reported on Wednesday.
The two sides had decided to implement a two-pronged strategy - track-II diplomacy along with consultations between the foreign ministries - as part of the composite dialogue process that will be resumes in December.
Hectic consultations are in progress between the two countries to work out dates for the meeting between national security adviser J N Dixit and his Pakistani counterpart, Tariq Aziz, in a neutral country, possibly Dubai, in mid-October, The Nation quoted officials as saying.
One official said that the proposed meeting might help both the countries to hold 'conclusive consultations' before Pakistan Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz's visit to India in November.
