MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar has confirmed to media that at the wake of 2 major incidents, the abduction and killing of policemen and the release of 20 postage stamps by Pakistan that glorifying terrorists in Kashmir, India has decided to go forward with the scheduled meeting between the two foreign ministers. He added that the evil agenda of Pakistan has been exposed and behind the claims of peace, the true face of the newly elected prime minister has been revealed.
