On Board A Special Aircraft: India on Wednesday said even "a few steps" by Pakistan in Mumbai terror attacks probe will satisfy it and help in resumption of the composite dialogue as well as carrying on with normal business between the two countries.

On his way to Kuwait for two-day official visit, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna said India will be "quite satisfied" with "a few steps" by Pakistan in the course of 26/11 investigations.

This, he said, will "certainly make it easier for India to carry on normal business with Pakistan".

"We are trying to focus their attention also on terrorism. It would be extremely helpful for our bilateral relationship and dialogue (if they take these measures)," he told journalists accompanying him on the visit.

Krishna said Home Minister P Chidambaram will represent India at the SAARC Home Ministers' meeting to be held in Rawalpindi on February 26 and 27.

"Chidambaram will get a chance to have very useful exchanges with his counterparts and other leaders in Pakistan," he said.

Pakistan has been strongly advocating resumption of Indo-Pak composite dialogue stalled after the Mumbai terror attacks in November 2008 while India has been maintaining that the atmosphere was not conducive enough to resume the dialogue.
