Manjeshwaram, Kerala, July 15: In the wake of the bomb attacks in Mumbai, India-Pakistan talks are not on New Delhi's immediate agenda and a decision to hold the parleys will be taken at an appropriate time, Minister of State for External Affairs E Ahamed said on Saturday.
India will also ask Pakistan to fully abide by its commitment that it would take serious initiatives to halt cross-border terrorism, he told reporters.
"India will ask Pakistan to fully adhere to President Pervez Musharraf's announcement in 2004 that his country would extend all support to end cross-border terrorism as the terror strikes in Mumbai not only shook the country but invited sharp reactions from the world community," Ahamed said.
The government on Friday decided not to go ahead with the foreign secretary-level talks slated for next week.
