US reminded Pakistan to follow through on its pledge to bring Mumbai terrorist attack perpetrators and sponsors to justice. U.S. was “monitoring the reports that an Islamabad High Court judge suspended detention orders for the alleged Mumbai attack mastermind” Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki told. “The Government of Pakistan has pledged its cooperation in bringing the perpetrators, financiers and sponsors of the Mumbai terrorist attacks to justice, and we urge Pakistan to follow through on that commitment,” she said. “Pakistan is a critical partner in a fight against terrorism,” Ms. Psaki said.
U.S. “can’t speculate on the outcome of an ongoing legal process in Pakistan” she said “Well, for now, let me also reiterate that he remains in prison. Obviously, there’s a range of ways that we share information. I’m not going to speak about that from the podium,” Ms. Psaki said. She said: “Well, certainly, we support ongoing dialogue. I’m not going to speak to how it will impact talks between two other countries.”
India summoned the Pakistan envoy in New Delhi to convey its outrage over the Islamabad court’s order saying the release of a person designated as international terrorist by the United Nations will pose a threat that cannot be ignored.
