New Delhi: Government today said there has not been any meeting between National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and his Pakistani counterpart Lt Gen (retd) Naseer Khan Janjua in Paris after the Pathankot attack in January.

"We denied it then and we deny it now," External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.

He was replying to a query on a media report that Doval and his Pak counterpart met in Paris in second week of January after Pathankot attack.

Though the Spokesperson has been maintaining that the two NSAs are in touch over the probe into the Pathankot terror attack, he has always denied that there was any meeting between the two.

The meeting in Paris with Janjua came soon after the Pathankot airbase attack on January 2 carried out by terrorists belonging to the Jaish-e-Mohammad, it added.
