At the business-like India-Pak summit held on the fourth floor of the New York Palace Hotel today, Pakistan Prime Minister assured his Indian counterpart that perpetrators of 26/11 attack would be brought to book now without much delay.
‘’Indeed, our intention is to take action. There would be progress now that the judicial commission of Pakistan has visited Mumbai and collected evidence,’’ Mr Sharif assured his host, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
Briefing reporters after the summit, National Security Advisor Shiv Shankar Menon said the meeting was useful.
Both sides agreed that pre-condition for forward movement in the relations, which both sides desire, is really an improvement over the situation on the Line of Control, Mr Menon said.
Stating that violations on the LoC were discussed at length, he said it was decided to task the DGMOs of two armies to suggest effective measures to restore ceasefire and the way forward in this matter.
‘’No timeline, as soon as possible,’’ Mr Menon replied when asked whether a time frame has been set for the DGMOs to give their report.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his guest, Mr Sharif discussed steps to see that earlier understandings in relations to trade and economy and other issues are implemented. Basic understanding is that all that will be possible if we deal with the situation on the LoC, Mr Menon said.
