No bilateral meeting between Indo-Pak commerce min
New Delhi: Ahead of the Annual Partnership Summit of nearly sixty countries including Pakistan in Agra from January 27, India on Thursday said there is no bilateral meeting scheduled between Indo-Pak commerce ministers.
"There was no scheduled meeting," Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma said when asked whether there was any scheduled bilateral meeting with his Pakistani counterpart on the margins of the three-day summit.
Pakistan Commerce Minister Makhdoom Amin Fahim and Commerce Secretary Munir Qureshi have confirmed their participation in the summit but significantly, Fahim is not having any bilaterals with Sharma.
This gave rise to reports that the recent tension along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir was the reason for not having any bilateral meeting between the ministers of India and Pakistan.
The summit is being organised by CII, Commerce and Industry Ministry and Uttar Pradesh government.
