Post India, US ask Pak to act against 26/11 attackers

Recognising the threat posed by outfits such as the al-Qaeda, LeT and the D-Company, India and the US today agreed to deepen cooperation in fighting terrorism and asked Pakistan to bring to justice the 2008 Mumbai attack perpetrators.
US Secretary of State John Kerry and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj co-chaired the first India-US Strategic and Commercial Dialogue that ended with the important takeaway of a joint statement on combating terrorism, recognising the threat posed by terror groups operating from terror safe havens within the South Asia region.
India and the US decided to take their counter-terrorism co-operation to the next level in view of the continued danger faced from terror groups and the emergence of the new global threat from the Islamic State.
At the conclusion of the dialogue, India and the US issued a joint statement on counter-terrorism co-operation, pledging to fight terrorism together. Swaraj said the joint statement reiterates commitment of the two countries on common approach against terror groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba, Haqqani network and the D-Company. "We (India and the US) call to Pakistan to bring to justice the perpetrators of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack," Swaraj said reading from the joint statement.
