Pakistan must act against terrorism: India

Rome, July 8 Ahead of a meeting between their foreign secretaries, India Tuesday said it will judge Pakistan by the action it takes against perpetrators of last year’s Mumbai terrorist attack.

Official sources said Pakistan’s commitment to fighting terrorism will be seen in the light of what action it takes against terrorists targeting India.

“We will cross the bridge when we reach it. Let’s see how they come back to the demand made by us and concerns expressed. Pakistan has to show action,” a senior Indian official said here.

Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon and his Pakistani counterpart Salman Bashir will meet on the sidelines of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit in Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt July 15.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh reached here this evening to participate in the July 8-10 G8-G5 summit in the earthquake-hit town of L’Aquila, about 100 km northeast of the Italian capital.
