Jehlum Post News Network/Islamabad/ March 5, 2015/ Foreign Office Spokesperson Tasneem Aslam said on Thursday that Pakistan would not characterize Indian foreign secretary’s visit as a failure,rather it is an ‘ice breaker’

between neighbouring countries. “I would not like to characterize it as failure. India had characterized it as a visit in the context of Saarc. We said that it is a visit that is taking place in lieu of the August visit as an ice breaker,” Aslam said while briefing media persons in Islamabad. On Tuesday, Indian Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar said ensuring peace and tranquility along the Line of Control and Working Boundary is vital. “This visit is part of the SAARC yatra to improve relations among SAARC countries as part of the initiative taken by the Indian PM,” Jaishankar had said while addressing the media. She said the meeting was held in a constructive and positive atmosphere but did not provide further details. Aslam said terrorism is a menace that any country cannot fight alone and requires cooperation from all countries. “The entire region is affected by terrorism and Pakistan has suffered the most from it,” the spokesperson said, adding that Pakistan has done a lot more than any other country to counter terrorism. The country expects similar role and cooperation from other countries,” Aslam said. There are reports and also investigations about the number of terror incidents that took place in India, the spokesperson said. “However, to immediately blame others on terror incidents is not the solution. First investigations should be conducted.” Tribune

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
