Pakistan Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir will be accompanied by a five-member delegation when he arrives in New Delhi for talks with his Indian counterpart Nirupama Rao on February 25. The delegation will arrive a day prior to the talks and will leave on February 26, a Pakistan High Commission source told PTI.
It was not clear whether the two foreign secretaries will do a joint media interaction after the parleys, with the current indications being that both sides would hold separate press conferences. The source said the itinerary for the delegation was still being worked-out and at the moment no appointment at the political level including External Affairs Minister S M Krishna was fixed.
Among others, the delegation will also comprise Pakistan Foreign Ministry spokesman Abdul Basit.
