India asks Pak to defer Malik’s visit

Operationalisation of the landmark Indo-Pak visa agreement will be delayed as India has asked Pakistan to postpone Interior Minister Rehman Malik's proposed visit here on November 22-23.

"The dates proposed by the Pakistani side are not suitable to us, so the visit of Rehman Malik stands postponed. Fresh set of dates will be discussed later," Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said. During Malik's proposed visit, the two sides had planned to operationalise the new liberalised Indo-Pak visa pact replacing a 38-year-old restrictive visa agreement and paving the way for time-bound visa approval.
