Mr Kumar said, terror and cross border terrorism were the focus of the talks.

"The spokesperson stated that Doval and Janjua also dwelled upon on how terrorism" terrorism should not affect "this region" in their "operational-level talks". The spokesperson, however, made it clear that this should not be construed as dilution of India's position that talks and terror can not go together.

"India and Pakistan have a dialogue process.However, there are other dialogue mechanisms like at the DGMO level or between the BSF and Pakistan Rangers", Kumar said.
