After days of political friction following terror attacks in India blamed on Pakistan, the two neighbouring countries are set to hold NSA-level talks in Delhi on 23 August.

Pakistan confirmed on Thursday that it will send its national security adviser Sartaj Aziz to Delhi next week for talks proposed by India, according to reports.

"I can confirm that I will be going to India on August 23," Sartaj Aziz, who is the adviser to Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on national security and foreign affairs, said at a press conference on Thursday, Reuters reported. 

Strained relations between the two nations had threatened NSA-level talks and other developments of the Ufa agreement between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif. 

A series of terror attacks by Pakistani suspects had left India fuming at Islamabad's inability to check terror emanating from its soil.

Earlier this month, a terrorist was captured following an attack in Udhampur in Jammu and Kashmir. The arrested terrorist admitted he is a Pakistani, hailing from Faisalabad.

Islamabad, however, yet again remained in a denial mode. As in the case of 26/11 Mumbai attacker Ajmal Kasab and his associates, it disowned Usman Naveed as a Pakistani citizen citing its database.

Pakistan continued to feign ignorance even as Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh categorically said that the terrorists involved in Udhampur and Gurdaspur terror attacks had entered India crossing the border.

Constant ceasefire violations by Pakistan this month have further worsened the relations.
