New Delhi, March 16 (IANS) India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday left for Saarc foreign ministerial level meeting scheduled for Thursday in Nepal’s Pokhara city.

“Leaving for Nepal. EAM @sushmaswaraj departs for the 37th SAARC foreign ministerial-level meeting in Pokhara,” external affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup said in a tweet.

Swaraj is also expected to meet Pakistan’s foreign affairs advisor Sartaj Aziz, who is already in Nepal to attend the meeting, Pakistani media said.

Swaraj and Aziz are likely to discuss the delayed foreign secretary-level talks between India and Pakistan, which were postponed due to a terror attack on Pathankot air base.
