Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi was on Monday quoted as having linked the Samjhauta train blasts near Panipat in 2007 to the Mumbai terror attacks in November last.

According to Dawn newspaper, Qureshi had told reporters in Multan that the Samjhauta Express incident and the Mumbai attacks were inter-connected and that the probe could continue only if India responds to questions raised by Pakistan.

However, the newspaper gave no quotations or details about his purported remarks.

Qureshi had on Sunday sought India’s cooperation in ensuring the prosecution and conviction of Pakistani suspects arrested for involvement in the Mumbai terrorist attacks.

“If India wants the prosecution and conviction of persons responsible (for the Mumbai attacks), then they must answer our questions in a serious manner,” he said, referring to queries sent by Pakistan to India last week seeking more information about the November 26 terrorist incident.
