Manmohan Singh Islamabad, June 18 (ANI): Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Thursday that Pakistan did not ask for more time for crackdown on the terrorists involved in the Mumbai terror attacks.

Qureshi said all the outstanding issues would be brought on the table in the next Indo-Pakistan talks at foreign secretaries level.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had said on Wednesday that Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari had sought more time to act against anti-India militants because Islamabad’s fight with the Taliban had entered a crucial phase.

“He did mention to me the difficulties Pakistan is facing in controlling terrorism and asked us to bear with him, to give him some more time,” Singh told reporters on his way back from Russia’s Yekaterinburg, where the two leaders met on Tuesday. (ANI)
