ISLAMABAD, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- Pakistani and Indian officials Monday opened two-day talks on conventional and nuclear confidence- building measures (CBMs) in Islamabad, officials said.

A 10-member Indian delegation is taking part in the talks as part of the bilateral dialogue process.

The two sides will discuss conventional CBMs on Monday and nuclear issues on Tuesday, officials said.

Joint Secretary in charge of Pakistan desk in the External Affairs Ministry, YK Sinha, will lead the Indian side at the talks on conventional CBMs. It will be followed by talks on nuclear CBMs, with Venkatesh Verma, joint secretary in charge of disarmament in the External Affairs Ministry, leading the Indian delegation.
