NSA Doval likely to visit J&K today to assess security situation
National Security Advisor Ajit Doval is likely to visit Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday to also assess the security situation in the state.

National Security Advisor Ajit Doval is likely to visit Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday to assess the security situation in the state.

The National Security Advisor is also expected to discuss the issue of radicalisation of youth in the state with the Mohammad Mufti Sayeed government.

Meanwhile, reports suggested that Doval's visit to the state is also aimed at formulating India's response during talks on terrorism with his Pakistani counterpart Sartaj Aziz. Doval is expected to meet Aziz in the national capital in August.

This comes three days after Pakistan's national security advisor said that it was too early to speculate on the timing of his visit to New Delhi to hold talks with Doval.

A meeting between the national security advisors of both the countries was announced at a joint press conference by India and Pakistan following a meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Ufa, Russia.

However, there has been no announcement on the date of the meeting between the two officials.

There have been a series of ceasefire violations along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir by Pakistan which has resorted to mortar shelling of Indian areas over the past few days.

India has responded in kind and both sides have said they had suffered casualties. Pakistan has also claimed to have downed a "spy drone" belonging to Indian security forces. India has rubbished the allegations, saying the drone appeared to be of Chinese design and is commercially available off the shelf.
