Yet to get confirmation from Pak about NSA-level talks: India

New Delhi: India on Thursday said it was yet to get a "confirmation" from Islamabad on the NSA-level talks, hours within Pakistan National Security Advisor Sartaz Aziz announing that he will travel to New Delhi on August 23 to hold the dialogue.

"On NSA talks, we have no confirmation (from Pakistan)," Spokesperson in the Ministry of External Affairs Vikas Swarup told reporters.

He was asked to comment on Pakistan Prime Minister's Advisor on National Security and Foreign Affairs Aziz's announcement in Islamabad to visit India for the talks

"Yes, I can confirm it that I will be going to India on (August) 23rd for talks," Aziz told reporters in Islamabad.

The announcement by Aziz came after considerable dilly-dallying by Pakistan, generating speculation that the army was against it as it was unhappy over non-inclusion of Kashmir in the statement which was issued after the meeting between the Prime Ministers of the two countries in Ufa, Russia.
