Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar on Wednesday accepted his Pakistani counterpart Aizaz Chaudhry’s invitation for talks on Jammu and Kashmir.

As per reports the foreign secretary, in response to the invitation from the Pakistan Foreign Secretary, has conveyed his willingness to visit Islamabad.

Chaudhary called Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan on Monday and handed over an invitation addressed to Jaishankar, the Foreign Office said.

New Delhi accuses Islamabad of arming and training the militants fighting to end Indian rule in Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan says it gives only moral and diplomatic backing.

India-Pakistan ties have become cold-hearted after violence broke out in Jammu and Kashmir after the killing of militant Burhan Wani on July 8.

Last month, Indian authorities also nabbed Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Bahadur Ali in Kashmir.
