Terming as "unofficial" Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf's visit to India, External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid on Sunday said success in bilateral issues involving the two neighbours was a time-taking affair. The minister also said that he would not be able to give a time-frame as to when official talks between the two nations could take place in the future. "Success (in issues related to India and Pakistan) is not achieved in a day or a moment. First the foundation is made and then we subsequently go ahead to create an edifice," Khurshid, who officiated as the chief guest at the Raising Day celebrations of paramilitary CISF here, said. He was asked if there was any progress in bilateral issues after he met the Pakistan Prime Minister in Jaipur on Saturday. Khurshid maintained that the visit of the Pakistani Prime Minister was "not an official" trip and it was a courtesy extended by the Indian government when Ashraf desired to visit the Sufi shrine in Ajmer along with his family.
