External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna on Tuesday said India would raise the issue of terror emanating from Pakistan and action against the accused of 26/11 attacks during his upcoming visit to Islamabad.
“We would like to talk to Pakistan on a number of concerns… but the primary concern would continue be the terror that emanates from Pakistan. I will continue to talk about terror… about 26 Mumbai attacks and also find out at what stage is the trial of accused in the Mumbai attacks is,” he said while returning from his five-day visit to Mauritius, Mozambique and Seychelles.
“After the visits of home minister and our foreign secretary, both countries have a better understanding of each other’s perception,” he said, adding there was a need to “reduce the trust deficit that seems to have mounted over a period of time”.
The meetings between the two Prime Ministers have created an atmosphere where we can talk with Pakistan without any inhibitions, he added.
Krishna had on Tuesday met Seychelles president James Alix Michel and discussed issues relating to security concerns, especially piracy.
