“At this stage, there is no back channel (talks) between Pakistan and India,” Foreign Office spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said in response to a question at a weekly briefing, The Express Tribune reported.

The Express Tribune reported that secret meetings between senior security officials of Pakistan and India in the United Arab Emirates led to the February 2021 renewal of the ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC). The next step was to restore bilateral trade but the process stalled when the then Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government turned down a decision to import sugar and cotton from India. Some reports later claimed that the possibility of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Pakistan was also discussed in behind-the-scenes talks.
