According to official sources, the 20-minute one-on-one meeting was held on a request of Swaraj. However, offices of both Singh and Swaraj did not comment on the issues discussed between the two.
Sources indicated that the recent terrorist attack in Pathankot, where seven security personnel were killed, might have figured in the meeting.
All terror-related information and inputs about Pakistan- based terrorist groups are provided by the Home Ministry to the External Affairs Ministry whenever India-Pakistan meet to discuss bilateral issues.
In a clear message, India has linked the FS-level talks to Islamabad's prompt and decisive action in the Pathankot terror attack for which it has provided actionable intelligence.
In a surprise move, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also visited Lahore on December 25 to greet his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif on his birthday in person.
