Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan T C A Raghavan said that negotiations with Pakistan were not possible in a climate of terrorism.

The talks with Pakistan did not look plausible until the problems India highlighted were resolved, Raghavan told reporters at the reception he hosted to celebrate the 66th Republic Day.

According to a TV report, the High Commissioner also said the UN banned Jamat-ud-Dawah in 2008, but Hafiz Syed, the mastermind of Mumbai attack, and his organisation are still operating without any checks by Pakistan.

Raghavan also allayed fears that the Indo-US relation was aimed against any country in the region. India and the US have agreed to boost their cooperation in defence and other areas during the ongoing visit of American President Barack Obama.

Obama and first lady Michelle are on a three-day visit to India at the invitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said it was wrong to think that the nuclear technology can only be used for war.
