In a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha, Minister of State for External Affairs Gen. (retd) VK Singh said that during the last round of commerce secretary-level talks in Islamabad on Sept. 20-21, 2012, Pakistan had agreed to a roadmap for normalisation of bilateral trade relations with India.
    
That included transitioning to MFN status for India in accordance with Pakistan's obligations under WTO, Singh said. "As Pakistan was not able to take the first step as per the roadmap, that is, ensure removal of all restrictions on trade through the Wagah-Attari land route, the sequential roadmap has remained unimplemented," the minister said.
