Question of the Day
The minister said “things are not exactly going as per our estimates, but nonetheless we cannot give up, we’ll have to keep engaging Pakistan. We’ll have to keep talking to them.”
India has been irked by the Pakistani Supreme Court’s recent decision not to put LeT founder Hafiz Mohammed Saeed behind bars in connection with the Mumbai attacks.
Mr. Krishna said Mrs. Clinton was quite aware of India’s various concerns with respect to Pakistan.
“The message that I get from the U.S. administration is that they are aware of India’s concerns and they are not do anything which will adversely affects India’s interest,” he said.
In addition, Mr. Krishna, Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao and Meera Shankar, India’s ambassador to the U.S., said India has been assured access to David Coleman Headley, the Pakistani-American who has admitted to helping LeT plot the Mumbai attacks. An Indian team of investigators is in the U.S. to question Headley.
Mr. Krishna said there is “overwhelming evidence” that Headley was one of the key conspirators in the Mumbai attacks. Headley has admitted in a plea agreement to scouting targets in India for LeT.
