NSA talks: India raises ceasefire violations

October 13, 2008 15:48 IST

India on Monday conveyed its concern to Pakistan over the recent spurt in border ceasefire violations and the attack on its embassy in Kabul for which ISI has been blamed.

The concerns were voiced during the talks between National Security Adviser M K Narayanan and his Pakistani counterpart Mahmud Ali Durrani.

During the meeting, the Indian side is understood to have emphasised that such incidents do not augur well for the ongoing peace process and composite dialogue.

The two sides are believed to have looked at ways by which ceasefire violations could be ended.

Ahead of the talks, Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon said all issues that concern India would be discussed.

"We will discuss all the issues that concern us. Naturally, that includes what happened in Kabul, that includes the situation in terms of maintaining the ceasefire. We will do that," he told reporters on the sidelines of a function.

India has been perturbed by increasing incidents of cross-LoC firing by Pakistani army, many a times to provide cover to infiltrating militants.

New Delhi [Images] has also been angry at the suicide attack on its embassy in Kabul on July 7, for which Afghanistan, India and the US have blamed Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI.
