New Delhi: Pakistan High Commissioner Shahid
Malik today met Union Home Minister P Chidambaram, days ahead
of the scheduled meeting of Home Ministers of SAARC countries
in Islamabad.

"It was a routine meeting. As you know the Home Minister
is travelling for the SAARC Home Ministers` meeting. I just
came to talk to him about that," Malik told reporters.

Malik was accompanied by his deputy Riffat Massod during
the nearly 30-minute long meeting.

Chidambaram is scheduled to visit Islamabad for the
meeting of the Home Ministers of eight-nation South Asian
Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) on June 26. The

The meeting will be attended by ministers from
Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal,
Pakistan and Sri Lanka and is expected to discuss regional
cooperation for dealing with the menace of terrorism,
narcotics smuggling and organised crime.

The first such meeting was held in Dhaka on May 11, 2006
followed by one in New Delhi on October 25, 2007.
Earlier in the day, a representative of United States
Embassy Steven J White met Home Secretary Pillai.

Investigation Agency is in Chicago to question Lashkar-e-Taiba
operative David Coleman Headley.
