Pakistan today called for fixing an early date for the Indo-Pak Foreign Secretary-level talks that has been postponed following the Pathankot terror attack.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Muhammad Nafees Zakaria said both sides are in contact on the issue, but no date has yet been fixed.

The talks should now be finalised as early as possible, he said at his weekly briefing.

India has cancelled the Foreign Secretary-level talks, scheduled for January 15 in New Delhi, following the Pathankot terror attack.

India blames Pakistan-based Jiash-e-Mohammed (JeM) for the January 2 attack in which seven security personnel were killed.

Commenting on the controversy surrounding Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in New Delhi, he said, “The Kashmiri people have never accepted the unfair trial of Afzal Guru.”

Afzal Guru was convicted for the 2001 Parliament attack in which nine security personnel were killed. He was hanged in February 2013.

“Pakistan has repeatedly voiced concerns and condemned the incidents in which Kashmiris in the valley were subjected to atrocities by the Indian troops,” Radio Pakistan quoted Zakaria as saying.
