The Congress on Tuesday welcomed the outcome of the India-Pakistan home secretary-level talks and hoped that the judicial commission would help speed up the 26/11 trial to bring to justice the perpetrators of the attacks in Mumbai.

"We hope that the judicial commission will definitely help in solving the 26/11 case and those behind the dastardly attacks would be brought to justice," Congress spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters in New Delhi.

He hoped Pakistan would extend cooperation to the judicial commission with regard to the investigations into the 26/11 attacks.

Pakistan today agreed to allow an Indian commission to visit the country in connection with 26/11 Mumbai terror attack case probe there.

Pakistan, which had been dragging its feet on allowing Indian investigators on its soil in relation to probing the source of the Mumbai attack, expressed its readiness during a meeting between home secretaries of the two countries which ended on Tuesday.

"The Pakistan side provided updates on the ongoing trial and investigation in Pakistan on the Mumbai terror attacks. Pakistan conveyed its readiness, in-principle, based upon the principle of comity and reciprocity, to entertain a commission from India with respect to Mumbai terror attack investigations," said a joint statement issued after the talks.
