The US has asked Pak­istan to co-op­er­ate with In­dia in the 26/11 in­ves­ti­ga­tions and have ap­pealed them to check all ter­ror groups op­er­at­ing on their soil. “We con­tinue to urge the Pak­istani gov­ern­ment to co-op­er­ate with the In­dian au­thor­i­ties to fully in­ves­ti­gate these at­tacks,” State De­part­ment deputy spokesper­son Mark Toner told re­porters at his daily news con­fer­ence.

“It (Mum­bai ter­ror­ist at­tack) was a ter­ri­ble tragedy. We want to see jus­tice done and we con­tinue to urge Pak­istani co­op­er­a­tion,” he said. The US, he said, is hav­ing an on­go­ing con­ver­sa­tion with the Pak­istani au­thor­i­ties that they need to ad­dress all groups op­er­at­ing on their soil and their ter­ri­tory in­clud­ing the Tal­iban groups. “We’ve urged them to do so in the past. We con­tinue to urge them to do so and have worked with them on ad­dress­ing the very real threat on their own soil,” Mr Toner said. Times of In­dia
