IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Islamabad, July 21, IRNA -- Pakistan's Foreign Minister Ms. Hina Rabbani Khar will travel to New Delhi on July 27 for talks with her Indian counterpart, Shri S.M. Krishna, the Foreign Ministry announced on Thursday.

In February, India and Pakistan had agreed to resume comprehensive dialogue suspended since the 2008 Mumbai terror attack.

Senior officials of the two countries have held series of talks over the past few months on host of issues, including terrorism and the longstanding Kashmir dispute.

'The Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, Ms. Hina Rabbani Khar will be visiting India on the invitation of Shri S.M. Krishna, External Affairs Minister of India, for the foreign ministerial level talks between Pakistan and India slated on July 27, 2011 in New Delhi,' a Foreign Ministry statement said.

These talks will be preceded by a meeting of the Foreign Secretaries of Pakistan and India on July 26, it said.

The composite dialogue was suspended by India after 10 militants from Pakistan launched a bloody assault on India's financial capital Mumbai on November 26 to 29, 2008, killing at least 170 people.

Sources said the two foreign ministers will review progress in talks between officials of the two countries. Some announcements are expected during the talks, they said.

The talks will cover all issues including terrorism, peace and security in South Asia and cooperation to counter the threat of terrorism.
