Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao will hold talks with her Pakistani counterpart Salman Bashir in Islamabad on June 24 to finalize the agenda for an upcoming meeting of the foreign ministers of the two countries, reported a local newspaper on Thursday.

According to the report, Rao is scheduled to arrive in Islamabad on June 23 and will hold talks with the Pakistani Foreign Secretary the following day.

The parleys will focus on the agenda for a meeting between Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Indian External Affairs Minister S M Krishna, which is to be held in Islamabad on July 15.

Rao will be the first senior Indian official to travel to Pakistan since the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. India suspended the composite dialogue process following the attacks.

At a meeting between Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani on the sidelines of the SAARC summit in Bhutan in April, the two countries decided to resume their peace process. India has said the two sides should adopt a phased approach towards the normalization of relations.
