“Talks and good relations can be successful and right only when terrorism is stopped. But if bomb blasts continue, then the talks will be lost in the din. This is what Narendra Modi told Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif,” said Sushma Swaraj, who took charge of her ministry Wednesday.

“We also raised the topic of speedy trials of the 26/11 terror attack and even they said they will work on it,” she said.

Terming the talks with SAARC leaders as “successful”, she said: “The prime minister told leaders that we should leave the contentious bilateral issues to the concerned parties and come together unitedly.”

Sushma Swaraj, who was received by Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh and other ministry officials, said that though she officially took charge Wednesday, she has been working since Tuesday, referring to the talks with the heads of different countries.
