Islamabad, Sep 8 (IANS) External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said Saturday that there was no question of India backtracking on the sensitive issue of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack as India and Pakistan move forward in their dialogue.

“Mumbai is very much on the table. They (Pakistan) will have to take follow up action on that. India is not going back on it,” Krishna told visiting Indian journalists here at the end of a day of talks with his Pakistan counterpart Hina Rabbani Khar.

“There is no question of bypassing 26/11. What happened in the immediate past is very much on the table,” he clarified when asked if India had agreed to overlook the Mumbai terror attack to take the dialogue process with Pakistan forward.

Both ministers had earlier Saturday said that the relationship between India and Pakistan could not be held hostage by the past.
