WASHINGTON - In what appears to be an attempt to irritate Pakistan, US special envoy Marc Grossman, who is tasked with gathering support for reconciliation talks with the Taliban, will go to India on his current trip around the region, only days after Islamabad said he was not welcome there. Grossman, who is in Dubai, left Washington on Jan. 15 on a trip that includes Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and Qatar, where he reportedly will be finalizing the arrangements for the opening of a Taliban representative office in Doha. The State Department admitted on Tuesday that Grossman wanted to visit Pakistan but that Islamabad asked him not to come.           –SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT
