ISLAMABAD: Foreign Secretary level talks between Pakistan and India being held at the Foreign Office have concluded.

Foreign Office sources say a consensus has been made over the Pakistan-India visa issuance policy, and it has been decided that 8 categories of visas will be issued.

The visa categories include diplomatic, non-diplomatic, 36 hour transit visit, tourist visas, civil society, media and business visas.

The Tourist visa will be limited to five destinations and will be valid for a period of six months, while the diplomatic visa category will offer visas to the consular, the consular mission and their family members.

The agreement of the new Pakistan-India visa issuance policy is expected to be signed on Saturday.

Meanwhile other issues discussed during the talks were terrorism, water dispute and Kashmir.

Pakistan Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani said the water dispute between Pakistan and India is very important, adding that the issue of Kashmir also needs to be resolved.

The Foreign Secretaries of India and Pakistan also agreed that the issue of terrorism is one that plagues both countries and must be solved collectively.

While speaking to the media Jilani said that the agenda of Saturday’s talks between the Foreign Ministers of Pakistan and India has also been decided in the secretary level meeting.

A report of the talks between the foreign secretaries will be submitted to the Foreign Ministers of both the countries.

We dont need any Indians coming over. It is better to sit in darkness and starve than to accept such gestures from India.

its good to see more visa categories. but its not going to help for common citizens. the new relaxation will help only the elite categories. it happens every day both sides of the country, when somebody' relative is dying for illness or have a wedding ,one cannot go right away but have to wait 30 days or more to get visa approval why is that. this is the tragedy going on everyday but no body wants to lookover this problem/ i wish somebody take this matter to higher authorities.
