Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir warned that US efforts to pressure Islamabad to release an American held for shooting dead two Pakistanis will be "counterproductive." Bashir also said Saturday that a meeting about the Afghan war in Washington later this month will likely be rescheduled because of the dispute over the American. The U.S. insists the American has diplomatic immunity and shot two Pakistanis in self-defense. Pakistan has avoided verifying his diplomatic status and referred the case to the courts. Salman Bashir said Pakistan has gained major progress by resuming talks with India after foreign secretary-level meeting at the sidelines of the 33rd Session of SAARC Council of Ministers meeting at Thimpu, Bhutan. He said in his meeting with Indian counterpart Nirupama Rao at Thimpu was positive in which they chalked out agenda of Foreign Minister-level meeting between the two countries to hold dialogues on settlement of disputes. Pakistans Foreign Minister will visit India in July to hold talks with his counterpart to review progress on the dialogue process, he said while speaking at news briefing at Foreign Office accompanied by FO spokesman Abdul Basit on Saturday.
