Terror infrastructure in Pak has to be dismantled: Tharoor

india Updated: Nov 25, 2009 16:39 IST

Concerned that Pakistan has not taken "adequate" steps to curb terror activities emanating from its soil, India today demanded that it take "effective action" to dismantle terror infrastructure and ensure that terrorists do not get financial support.

"Government of India has been concerned for quite some time that the steps we have asked the Government of Pakistan
to take to dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism in that country have not been adequately taken," Minister of State for
External Affairs Shashi Tharoor told reporters here.

Maintaining that India has not seen "any evidence" of Pakistan dismantling the training camps for terrorists despite
repeated reminders, he said, "...we have not seen any evidence of the dismantling of the camps that have been used in the
past or the new camps that have sprung up that have been used to train terrorists and so called militants to bring violence
to our country."

On Army Chief Deepak Kapoor's remarks that 42 terrorist camps are operating from the PoK and that 2,500
terrorists are ready to cross over to India, the minister said he was aware of the specific information.

He said the country has been demanding that Pakistan take effective action to dismantle the infrastructure of
terror which includes training camps and financial support to these camps.
