NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India is willing to send its top diplomat to Pakistan for talks focused on fighting cross-border terrorism, sources at its foreign ministry said on Wednesday, after a spike in tension in the disputed northernmost region of Kashmir.

Indian Foreign Secretary Subrahmanyam Jaishankar was willing to attend talks on the invitation of his Pakistani counterpart, the sources said, adding that they should be focused on the situation in Kashmir.
