Foreign Office Spokesman Qazi Khalilullah during his weekly briefing said, "It is premature to talk about the agenda of the meeting which will be prepared in due course."
Asked about proposed meeting of the National Security Advisors -- Ajit Doval and Sartaj Aziz -- in New Delhi on August 23-24, he said the dates were still under consideration.
On ex-Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) chief Tariq Khosa's recent article stating that the Mumbai attack mayhem was planned and launched from Pakistan, Khalilullah said, "I will not comment on views of an individual and related media reports. Trial is still going on with regard to Mumbai attacks. You are aware that additional information is required from India so that the trial can be concluded in Pakistan."
Talking about humanitarian considerations, Khalilullah said Pakistan from time to time had been releasing Indian fishermen, including the recent release of 163 fishermen.
