Bangalore: External Affairs Minister S M
Krishna Saturday said there was no high expectation from the
meeting between Home Minister P Chidambaram and his Pakistani
counterpart Rehman Malik but a "beginning has been made".

Talking to reporters here, he said, "I don`t think we
had any high expectations (from the meeting yesterday)... (but)
a beginning has been made.

"Such high-level visits serve a very important purpose
and in my opinion that purpose has been served."

On the outcome of the meeting between Chidambaram and
Malik, he said, "Do not be in a rush. Let the home minister
come back. If he (Chidambaram) has anything of substance to
report to the Cabinet, he will do it."

To a query about a view that there was no point in
talking to the civilian establishment in Pakistan as
everything rests with the Army, Krishna said, "I do not want
to go into the polemics of it."

He said he was looking forward to his visit to
Islamabad on July 14.
