ISLAMABAD (Agencies) Pakistan may appoint Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir as its next High Commissioner to India to replace Shahid Malik, whose term is set to end in June. The government had considered the possibilities of posting Bashir as Pakistan's permanent representative to the UN, the Ambassador to the US or the High Commissioner to India, sources in the Foreign Office said. However, with President Asif Ali Zardari reluctant to replace Husain Haqqani as the envoy in Washington and with Hussain Haroon reviewing his call to be replaced as the permanent representative to the UN, the government had come round to the possibility of sending Bashir to New Delhi, the sources told Indian news agency PTI. A final decision in this regard in yet to be made by the government, the sources said. High Commissioner Shahid Malik is on a contract following his retirement and his tenure will end in June. Bashir is likely to be posted to India only after the upcoming meeting of the foreign secretaries in Bhutan next month and expected meeting of the foreign ministers in March. Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani is considering a new assignment for Bashir as he is set to complete his three-year tenure as foreign secretary.
