New Delhi, February 13
Terming the threat of terrorism from Pakistan as a “global menace and cancer”, India today linked the future of Indo-Pak ties with the actions the neighbouring country takes in the coming days to bring to justice the masterminds of the Mumbai terror attacks.

“I must underline that we have no quarrel with the people of Pakistan. We wish them well and do not think that they should be held responsible or face consequences of this situation,” External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee said in a suo-motu statement in Parliament, a day after Islamabad admitted that the conspiracy to mount the attacks was partially hatched in Pakistan.

Mukherjee said India had consciously and after due deliberations not thought it necessary or fit to curtail people-to-people contact and train and road links. He highlighted the sequence of events in India-Pakistan ties ever since the heinous attacks took place in India’s financial capital on November 26, claiming the lives of nearly 180 persons. Since December 1 last year, the Minister pointed out, the bilateral dialogue between India and Pakistan had been at a pause.
