Pakistan on Monday responded to India’s accusation that groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba are planning attacks from across the border by saying that New Delhi should share actionable information to prevent such incidents.
"We have repeatedly requested the Indian government to share with us whatever information it has in this regard. Sharing of real-time, credible and actionable information on any future terrorist threats was deemed essential by the Prime Ministers of Pakistan and India at the Sharm el-Sheikh summit," said a statement from Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesman.
The spokesman was reacting to comments made earlier in the day by Home Minister P Chidambaram, who told a meeting of top police officials in New Delhi that Pakistan-based groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) were continuing to plan terror strikes in India.
Chidambaram expressed deep concern over terrorism "emanating from across the border" and said it continues to remain a persistent threat to India’s security. He also said local support for Pakistan-based terror groups had not ended. The Mumbai terror attacks, which have been blamed on the LeT, were a "game changer", he added.
