Ludhiana: India Saturday said the ongoing peace
talks with Pakistan cannot progress till the neighbouring
country gets serious on the terrorist front.

Though terrorism has now become a global issue, Pakistan
should give a serious thought to the problem, Minister of
State for External Affairs Preneet Kaur told reporters here.

"We are sensitive on the issue (of terrorism) because
Pakistan is our closest neighbour," she said, adding that
training given to terrorists in Pakistan was impeding the
talks.

To a question, she said the Centre has deleted names of
25 persons from the black list carrying names of those
involved in terror activities in Punjab.

This step has been taken after the verification of the
list by the Punjab government as desired by the Centre, she
said.
