Trade talks between Pakistan and India,originally scheduled for September 12 and 13 in Islamabad,have been postponed,sources said.

According to sources,the decision was taken on Pakistan’s behest,as the foreign affairs and commerce ministries are reportedly not on the same page over the ”pace” regarding the talks with India,reports The Nation.

The new dates would be finalised in the next few days after negotiations between the two ministries,sources added.

Pakistan had earlier deferred the talks,which were scheduled to be held in July-August this year,till September 12.

The two countries were to discuss matters relating to granting the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status to India. Pakistan had already announced that the Negative List would be converted into Positive List by December 31 this year,implying that India would get MFN status from January 1 next year.
