NEW DELHI (AFP) - India announced on Wednesday that Home Minister P Chidambaram will visit Pakistan for a regional meeting, in the first sign of tensions easing since the 2008 Mumbai attacks. Indian FM SM Krishna said Chidambaram would attend a conference of South Asian interior ministers due to take place in Rawalpindi on Feb 26 and 27. Chidambaram will get a chance to have very useful exchanges with his counterparts and other leaders in Pakistan, Krishna told reporters. The planned trip will be the first to Pakistan by an Indian government minister since the Mumbai attacks by militants. Krishna also said India would be 'quite satisfied if Pakistan sped up its investigations into the carnage. This will certainly make it easier for India to carry on normal business with Pakistan. We are trying to focus their attention on terrorism. It would be extremely helpful for our bilateral relationship and dialogue, Krishna added. Monitoring Desk adds: Krishna said even 'a few steps by Pakistan in Mumbai attacks probe will satisfy it and help in resumption of the composite dialogue as well as carrying on with normal business between the two countries.
