Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria met Pakistan’s National Security Adviser Nasser Khan Janjua on Tuesday to discuss the ways in which the bilateral relationship could be improved, The Times of India reported. The meeting, which was initially scheduled to be held last week, came days after the two countries agreed to resolve concerns about the treatment of each other’s diplomats.

Bisaria suggested taking small steps to improve the bilateral relations, including exchange of prisoners, visits of medical teams and trade initiatives, the Pakistan national security adviser’s office said.

“The Indian High Commissioner sensitised the Pakistan NSA on issues of India’s concern,” The Hindu quoted unidentified officials in the Indian High Commission as saying. Bisaria reportedly brought up the matter of Pakistan-based militant outfits carrying out terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.

Janjua is believed to have expressed the aim to resolve all outstanding disputes through comprehensive dialogues, PTI reported. “The process of dialogue is the only way forward to resolve our disputes,” he said in a statement that his office released. “It is by way of peaceful resolution of our disputes that both the countries can belong to the future.”

Janjua also shared “serious concerns over the ongoing human rights violations” in Jammu and Kashmir and said that the dispute cannot be resolved through force. “It rather diminishes hope, injures the society and further worsens the fragile situation,” he added.
