New Delhi: Foreign Secretaries of India and Pakistan will hold parleys this month-end to review the status of bilateral ties and regional situation, the first such exercise since their last meet in February in Thimphu.

This was conveyed by Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao to visiting Pakistani journalists who called on her, according to official spokesperson in the MEA.

"Visiting Pakistani journalists called on Foreign Secretary. Next India-Pakistan Foreign Secretary-level talks in late June," Vishnu Prakash tweeted here.

"The meeting will take stock of the progress made by India and Pakistan during series of parleys held at senior levels on various issues such as security, water, trade and commerce," sources said.

However, they said dates have not been fixed for the meeting between Rao and her Pakistani counterpart.

The two countries had earlier this year agreed to resume their comprehensive dialogue on all bilateral issues to resolve all outstanding issues in a constructive and forward- looking manner, two years after talks had been stalled between them in the wake of Mumbai terror attacks.

It was decided that meetings at the level of respective Secretaries will be convened on counter-terrorism (including progress on Mumbai trial), humanitarian issues, peace and security, including CBMs, Jammu and Kashmir, promotion of friendly exchanges, Siachen, economic issues, Wullar Barrage/Tulbul Navigation Project and Sir Creek (at the level of Additional Secretaries/Surveyors General).
