NEW DELHI (AFP) Talks that were meant to build trust between India and Pakistan threatened to create more animosity on Friday as the mood soured the day after their foreign ministers met in Islamabad. Pakistans Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Indias SM Krishna held talks Thursday in the third high-level contact between the countries during a six-month thaw in relations that were derailed by the 2008 Mumbai attacks. Billed as a chance to build trust, the ministers made modest progress and focused largely on the issue of cross-border militancy - Indias key concern - while agreeing to meet again in New Delhi. But Qureshi, after attacking Indias home secretary in a tense final press conference between the ministers, also appeared to question Krishnas authority in comments to reporters on Friday. I did not leave the talks even once to discuss the progress by telephone, he told reporters Friday. But why did instructions keep coming in from New Delhi in the presence of the Indian foreign minister? Who is the top foreign policy adviser for India? Krishna called this an extraordinary statement to make as he arrived back at New Delhi airport and said he did not take calls from anyone during the negotiations. Overlooking Qureshis comments, which provoked a furious reaction among Indian commentators, he attempted to put a more positive spin on the meeting, saying it had helped to build confidence. I think we have contributed in a manner where the trust deficit is getting reduced and it is part of the confidence building measures, he said. Qureshi also accused India of narrowing down the talks by focusing exclusively on militancy rather than the whole range of issues between the countries, including water and Kashmir. We wanted that our discussions should lead to a roadmap but Indians felt they did not have the mandate to commit to it, Qureshi said. Even before talks got underway, comments from Indias Home Secretary GK Pillai darkened the mood. He accused Pakistans intelligence agency of coordinating the Mumbai 2008 attacks. Indian and Pakistani newspapers were also rife with mutual recrimination about the latest talks on Friday. The trust-building dialogue ended in a deadlock as the two sides failed to come up with a clear roadmap for sustainable engagement or a consensus on confidence-building measures, said a Pakistani newspaper.
