ISLAMABAD - Apart from taking cotton import issue, Pakistan would ask India to reduce the non-tariff barriers between the countries in the upcoming Commerce Secretaries level talks to be held on April 27 and 28 in Islamabad, The Nation has learnt. We have not yet finalised the agenda of Pak-India Commerce Secretaries talk. However older issues will come under the discussions in the upcoming meeting, said Secretary Commerce Zafar Mahmood while talking to The Nation on Thursday. He further said that Pakistan would take the issue of import of cotton bales with India, as All Pakistan Textile Mills Association (APTMA) has some problems with Indian exporters relating to cotton bales. The government would also ask New Delhi to reduce non-tariff between the two countries, he added. It is worth-mentioning here that Pakistani textile importers made contracts with India regarding one million cotton bales after the devastating floods, which ruined the cotton crop, however later India refused to export it as commodity prices start increasing in the international market, as earlier they made contracts at lower rates with Pakistanis importers. Later Pakistan took the issue with the Indian government, however still the matter remains unresolved between the two sides. The Pakistan and Indian Commerce Secretaries would hold meeting on April 27 and 28 in Islamabad after a long period of time. Sources in Commerce Ministry told The Nation that Islamabad would likely ask the New Delhi to withdraw its resistance on the proposed European Unions concession offered for Pakistan after the unprecedented floods in the country last year 2010. India has shown reservation over the concession given to Pakistan in World Trade Organization (WTO) and the matter is still pending. Sources were of the view that Pakistan and India would also make negotiations for increasing the positive list of traded commodities between the two countries.
