Agencies add: They have proposed foreign secretary-level talks and we have sought clarification on the contents of the proposed talks. We are awaiting response from India, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abdul Basit told AFP. The countries foreign secretaries are the top civil servants in their respective foreign ministries. Leaders from both countries, including the prime ministers, have met several times in the past year during regional conferences. Two Indian television stations, quoting unnamed official sources, said the talks would be held at foreign secretary-level. They did not say when the meetings might to be held. There are now signals emanating from India that they are willing to talk bilaterally, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told Reuters. We welcome this ... if it leads to resumption of the composite dialogue. The NDTV Station quoted government sources saying that India would go into the talks with an open mind and discuss all issues on the table without judging the outcome of the discussions. Dialogue launched between India and Pakistan in early 2004 helped to significantly lower tensions between the nuclear-armed rivals. But India blamed the Mumbai attacks on the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba group and broke off the peace process, demanding Islamabad bring the culprits to justice before talks could resume. Chidambaram will be the first top-level official to cross the border since the Mumbai attacks. Indian Foreign Ministry officials said Chidambaram would meet his Pakistani counterpart, Rehman Malik, and other officials for talks that may have a narrow focus on what action Islamabad has taken in regard to the Mumbai attacks. Any dialogue now will focus on what progress Pakistan has made in dismantling the terrorist network on its soil that was used to attack Mumbai, a senior government official said on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue. It could be a beginning that could help move things forward.
