Can you tell us something about the regional dialogue you have just had?
It’s something that started last year. In our conversations we express our positions, our views on events in the region and on India, and get Indian views as well so that there’s better understanding between us on what our policies are. It’s also an opportunity to build on those areas that we have already identified, Afghanistan being a case in point.

What’s happening in Afghanistan, security-wise? Reports are that a couple of Pakistani officials have been arrested in Zabul province fighting alongside the Taliban....
I don’t think we have any information that confirms that at all, unless something has happened in the last few hours. Overall, we think Afghanistan is moving in the right direction. What we are concerned about is the security situation. It’s a fragile security situation and we will be stepping up our assistance.
