Astana (Kazakhstan): Pakistan's claim about reduction in trust deficit with India on Wednesday got a sharp rebuke from External Affairs Minister S M Krishna who said he was yet to see the initiatives Islamabad has taken to rein in terror as many training camps still exist there.

Pakistan's Interior Minister Rahman Malik, who was attending the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit here, said that the trust deficit with Pakistan had reduced following the several rounds of talks between ministers and top officials of the two countries.

"I think it will have to be assessed. The question still remains very much unanswered that there are training camps still in Pakistan," Krishna told reporters accompanying him on visit to Kazakhstan.

He was asked to react to Malik's claims.

"We have repeatedly brought it to the notice of the Government of Pakistan that these terror training outfits will have to be abandoned and I do not know of the initiatives that the Government of Pakistan has taken to dismantle these terror motivating outfits," Krishna said.

Asked whether five rounds of talks with Pakistan since April last year have made any progress, the minister was cautious and said "the foreign secretaries of the two countries are meeting very soon and we will make our assessment on how it goes."
