India Asks Pakistan for Speedy 26/11 Justice

Colombo, Nov 26 (IANS) Underlining its commitment to resolving all bilateral issues through dialogue, India Friday asked Pakistan to dismantle the terror machinery and bring the perpetrators of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks to speedy justice.

"On the second anniversary of the barbaric terrorist attack in Mumbai, the nation pays respectful homage to its sons, daughters and foreign guests, whose innocent lives were cruelly snuffed out," External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna, who is on a four-day visit to Sri Lanka, said here.

"The day is a stark reminder that no cause can ever justify terror, either by state or non-state actors," he said.

"Once again I call upon Pakistan to dismantle the terror machinery operating with impunity in territories under its control and to bring all the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attack to speedy justice," the minister said.

Alluding to his talks with his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmmod Qureshi July 15 in Islamabad, Krishna said India is seeking "peaceful, stable and cooperative relations with Pakistan".

"India is committed to resolving all outstanding issues with Pakistan through dialogue," he said.

Krishna said he has invited Qureshi to New Delhi for further discussions. Qureshi is expected to visit India early next year.
