Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Islamabad - Afghan Foreign Minister Zalmai Rassoul will Friday visit Pakistan to discuss issues related to Islamabad's role in the Afghan peace process, the Pakistani foreign ministry said Thursday.

Rassoul will speak with Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, Xinhua reported citing a ministry statement.

The Afghan minister, to be accompanied by a delegation from the ministry of foreign affairs, will also call on the Pakistani leadership.

The visit comes days after a trip to Islamabad by an Afghan peace envoy. During the visit, Pakistan released 13 Taliban prisoners, including a key military commander, to push forward the peace process.

The US-led NATO troops are scheduled to hand over security of the country to Afghan forces in 2014. Britain, France, Australia and many other countries have already pulled out many of their troops from Afghanistan.
