印巴藉伊斯兰堡对话重建信任 India, Pakistan Seek to Rebuild Trust in Islamabad Talks

15 July, 2010

印度和巴基斯坦外交部长在伊斯兰堡会晤,恢复双边对话。这是他们在两年前孟买袭击导致和平谈判停顿后第一次会面。

印度外交部长克里希纳和巴基斯坦外交部长沙阿-迈赫穆德-库雷希星期四开始会谈,当天稍晚将出席记者会来回顾会谈的进展。

克里希纳星期三抵达时告诉记者,这次出访标志着努力改善双边紧张关系的一个新开端。

会谈议程主要是印度在安全方面的顾虑,包括恐怖主义、印属克什米尔的暴力活动以及阿富汗的敌对行动。

印度说,除非巴基斯坦镇压激进组织虔诚军,否则两国关系不可能改善。印度当局指控虔诚军发动了孟买袭击。

The foreign ministers of India and Pakistan are meeting in Islamabad to revive bilateral dialogue, their first meeting since the Mumbai terrorist attacks derailed peace negotiations two years ago.

Indian Foreign Minister S.M. Krishna and his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi opened talks Thursday, and are expected to appear at a press conference later in the day to review their progress.

Krishna told reporters on arrival Wednesday that his visit marks a new beginning in the efforts to improve strained relations.

The agenda for the talks was dominated mostly by India's security concerns, including terrorism, violence in Indian-controlled Kashmir and rivalry in Afghanistan.

India says no improvement in the relationship can come until Pakistan cracks down on the militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba, who Indian authorities accuse of carrying out the Mumbai attacks.
