Benaulim (Goa), Mar 4 (PTI) External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar is set to hold separate bilateral talks with his Chinese counterpart Qin Gang and Russia’s Sergey Lavrov at a beach resort in Goa on Thursday on the sidelines of a conclave of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) amid rapidly evolving regional security situation.

People familiar with preparations for the conclave said there is no plan yet for a structured bilateral meeting between Jaishankar and Pakistan Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhtutto-Zardari.  But they did not rule out a pull aside between the two foreign ministers.

Qin, Lavrov, Bhutto-Zardari and foreign ministers of other SCO countries are arriving in Goa on Thursday to attend a crucial conclave of the SCO that is taking place ahead of the annual summit of the grouping in the first week of July.  India has been maintaining that Pakistan must show seriousness towards fighting terrorism and that talks and terror cannot go together.
