ISLAMABAD (News Desk) – While the public from both India and Pakistan are still in a shock following last week’s sudden developments which melted ice between two countries, the Dawn has reported that foreign secretaries of the neighbouring nations are likely to meet in January to discuss the strategy to begin the new comprehensive dialogue.

Pakistan and India had announced to take fresh start of talks to resolve all bilateral issues after a tw0-minute meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi which was further followed by a two-day trip of Indian  foreign minister Sushma Swaraj to Islamabad.

According to report, the recent efforts in Pakistan and India to bridge the differences between both countries was a result of combined pressure from United States, United Kingdom and Germany.
