Washington, Mar.10 (ANI): The United States has once again asked Pakistan to act sincerely in its probe into the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, and bring the perpetrators to book.
Talking to media persons at a regular press briefing here, State Department Spokesman, Robert Wood said the Mumbai investigations was far from over, as more concrete evidences were required to put the perpetrators behind bars.
I think overall our assessment has been that Pakistan has been providing some helpful information, but clearly, you know, more can be done, The Nation quoted Wood, as saying.
He said the diplomatic efforts were on to bring the culprits out from their hiding and put them to justice.
What is critical here is that we do everything in our power to try to bring the folks who are responsible for those attacks to justice, Wood added.
Wood said the Mumbai issue may figure in the talks between the Indian Foreign Secretary, Shiv Shankar Menon and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
I cannot guarantee that it will come up. I certainly expect that it would, and we would be very interested to hearing how things are going on that front, he added.
Interestingly, the US statement comes a day after the Interpol commended Islamabads work in the Mumbai investigations, and charged New Delhi of not co-operating over the issue. (ANI)
