NEW DELHI:  In a dramatic development, the National Security Advisors of India and Pakistan held a secret meeting in Bangkok today, discussing a range of issues including peace and security, terrorism and Jammu and Kashmir.

This meeting was agreed on by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif when they met in Paris last week. Bangkok was chosen as it was a convenient location for both sides.

A joint statement issued later said the Foreign Secretaries of both countries accompanied the NSAs.

The statement said the discussions “covered peace and security, terrorism, Jammu and Kashmir, other issues including tranquility over the Line of Control”.

Sources say the NSAs will meet again.  “It was agreed to carry forward the constructive engagement,” the statement, too, said.
