ISLAMABAD: Indian Home Minister P. Chidambaram on Friday expressed his reservations on the activities of Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed Ahmed.
Ministry of Interior and Foreign affairs sources told DawnNews that Chidambaram told the Pakistani officials that India had very credible and solid proofs about Saeed’s negative activates in Punjab.
On the other hand, the interior ministers of Pakistan and India agreed to hold further discussion on security issues after their meeting, which the Pakistani minister described as a “good beginning”.
The meeting between Rehman Malik and P. Chidambaram took place a day after the nations' top diplomats expressed optimism that relations between the two nuclear rivals would improve.
“Talks were held in a very good atmosphere and good topics were discussed. I can only say that there is a good message for the people of Pakistan and India, that there has been a very good beginning,” Malik said after the meeting.
India made no immediate comments after the meeting, which was due to continue on Saturday.
Speaking to reporters before the meeting, Malik said he would share with his Indian counterpart “credible evidence” Pakistan had collected against suspects under trial for involvement in the Mumbai attacks.
“I said that it should be a change of heart rather than dossiers,” he told a questioner, referring to the information India had provided Pakistan about its own investigation into the Mumbai attack.—DawnNews/Reuters
