NEW DELHI: National Security Adviser, Lt Gen (retd) Nasser Khan Janjua held a secret meeting with the Indian National Security Adviser, Ajit Doval on December 26 in Bangkok.

The leading Indian media outlet Sunday Express reported that the NSA of both the neighboring countries held a secret meeting on December 26 meeting at a ‘neutral venue’ in Bangkok.

The report added that the date and time of the meeting were pre-planned.

Pakistani officials have not commented on the report officially or anonymously, regarding the NSA meeting with Indian counterpart.

The last time the two NSAs met, in December 2015 in Bangkok, the incident was followed by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s surprise stop-over in Lahore to attend then-prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s granddaughter’s wedding.

On December 28, Janjua held a five-hour long meeting with former prime minister Nawaz Sharif at his Jati Umra residence.
