India has told Pakistan that the least it expected from Islamabad was "tangible results" in the investigations and prosecutions into the Mumbai terror attacks.
"We have suggested to the Government of Pakistan that the perpetrators of that attack on Mumbai must be brought to justice...," External Affairs Minister S M Krishna told PTI.
"That is the least that we expect from them," he said soon after two hour-long meeting with his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mahmood Qureshi in New York on Sunday.
Krishna said that further talks between the two countries would depend on concrete action taken by Islamabad on the Mumbai attacks, particularly the upcoming trials.
Earlier, Qureshi told journalists that Pakistan had arrested seven people in connection with the Mumbai carnage and their prosecutions would begin on October 3. "Pakistan wants to see this trial to a logical conclusion," he said.
In response to Qureshi's announcement that Pakistan would begin trials of the suspects, including LeT operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and computer and communications expert Zarar Shah, Krishna said that India would not "monitor" these proceedings.
"We cannot monitor a development taking place in a friendly country like Pakistan," he said.
