Just talks will not solve terror threat

Tehran, Aug 28 (ANI): On the eve of possible meeting between Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, on the sidelines of the XVIth Non-Aligned Summit Meet in Tehran, a government source said “Sirf baatcheet se terrorism hall nahii ho sakti.” (Terrorism will not be solved with just talks).

While not dismissing the importance of engaging with Pakistan at various levels, the official was candid that Pakistan was delaying acting upon bringing the perpetrators of 26/11 to justice.

The official said that all manner of proof and evidences had been handed to Pakistan but, since there were people in the “official hierarchy” involved in the incident; Pakistan was dragging its feet on delivering justice.

He said it was preposterous to equate the Samjhauta Express incident and the 26/11 strike, stating that India had moved to deliver justice on the crime committed on its soil whereas Pakistan was still pretending to be the victim.

He said that India did not see Pakistan as a victim of terrorism, and added that it was a convenient ploy used by Pakistan to deviate from the issue on hand, by playing the victim card when it came to 26/11.

Sources said that information provided by Abu Jundal and Ajmal Amir Kasab formed part of all the proof that has been provided to Pakistan and, this will not come up for discussion during the talks that the Prime Minister will be holding with President Zardari tomorrow.

Sources said that it was up to the security setup in Pakistan to ensure that terrorists find it impossible to operate in its realm.

That is not happening so far in Pakistan where terror outfits continue to freely plan and put into action terror activities.
