Government on Wednesday said Pakistan has acknowledged and admitted that the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks were launched from its soil.

"Pakistan acknowledged and admitted on February 12, 2009 that the attack on Mumbai on November 26, 2008 was planned and launched from Pakistan," External Affairs Minister S M Krishna said in reply to a query in the Lok Sabha.

"In its dossier of July 11 last year, Pakistan also acknowledged that substantial evidence had been unearthed, which directly connects five accused LeT operatives under Pakistani custody to the attacks," he added.

On the India-Pakistan Foreign Secretary level talks, the Minister said the talks were not continuation of the Composite dialogue process and "will focus essentially on India's core concerns regarding terrorism".

Krishna said India expected Pakistan to bring the perpetrators of the 26/11 attacks to justice, unravel the full conspiracy behind it and fulfil its commitment to dismantle the terror infrastructure there.
