Sartaj Aziz: Will Discuss Anything That Swaraj Wants To


Pokhara: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said that anything Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj wants to discuss will be discussed during his stay in Pokhara to attend the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) ministerial meeting.

“The meeting is of course to hand over the invitation for the SAARC Summit, but anything that she ( Sushma Swaraj) wants to discuss, we will discuss,” said Aziz.

Aziz and Sushma will hold a bilateral meeting in Pokhara on Thursday.

On being asked about other discussions like the recent Pathankot terror in India’s airbase, Aziz evaded the question.

Aziz, however, said that the Pakistan ‘s special investigation team will soon be visiting India to probe the attack.

Meanwhile, Swaraj has also arrived in Pokhara.

Swaraj is expected to raise the Pathankot terror attack with Aziz during the meeting on the sidelines of SAARC.

This development comes amid the stalled Foreign Secretary-level talks between both nations following the impasse over the probe of the January 2016 Pathankot Air Base terror attack.
