Pak HC Sohail Mahmood met External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj

Vastavam web: Pakistan today said its High Commissioner Sohail Mahmood met External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, but dismissed as “speculative” the reports in media that the two discussed the issue of Kulbhushan Jadhav.Foreign Office issued a statement after reports in media claimed that Swaraj asked Mahmood to drop all charges against Jadhav and send him back for any progress in bilateral ties.Foreign Office spokesman Nafees Zakaria today confirmed that Mahmood met Swaraj on October 17 but asserted that it was a routine meeting by the diplomat who recently assumed office as Pakistan’s new High Commissioner to India.
“While broad contours of bilateral relations were deliberated upon during this interaction, no specific case came under discussion. Therefore, the reports appearing in the Indian media are speculative,” Zakaria said.”The Minister and the High Commissioner took stock of the current state of Pakistan-India relations,” he said.
