Pak Should Act against Anti-Indian Terror: Singh to Obama

Conveying India’s concerns to the US, Prime Minster Manmohan Singh has said that Pakistan should realize the significance of the disclosures made by Lashkar operative David Coleman Headley and act against anti-Indian terrorism emanating from its soil, said media reports.

Singh conveyed India’s concern to President Barack Obama during a half-hour meeting between them on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit here.

Talking to reporters, Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao said that the two leaders held discussions on the situation in the region and they spoke of counter-terrorism in Afghanistan to stablilise the situation there, reports said.

Singh briefed Obama about the peace initiatives with Pakistan but made it clear that Islamabad should abide by its commitment of not to allow terrorism emanating from its soil directed against India, said reports.

The activities of Headley came up for discussion in the light of information coming out of Pakistani-American LeT operative and the two leaders also went over the fact whether Pakistan is serious in using this information in tackling terror in the region, reports said.

The Prime Minister told Obama that while peace initiatives had their place, it was for Pakistan to show whether it was serious about using that information to tackle terrorism in the region, said reports.

Responding to a query about Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik’s reported statement that it was not possible for either Pakistan or India to control the likes of LeT chief Hafiz Saeed, Rao said that it was possible for Pakistan to control the activities of people like Saeed who were not doing right for relationship between the two countries, reports said.
