The Mumbai terror attacks did not figure in the discussion with visiting US special envoy Richard Holbrooke, Pakistani Foreign Ministser Shah Mehmood Qureshi said in Islamabad on Tuesday.

"In the interactions we had, Mumbai did not surface at all," he replied when asked at a press conference whether the Mumbai mayhem that India has blamed on elements operating from this country, figured in his discussions with Holbrooke, whom US President Barack Obama has appointed as his special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The sub-continental tensions in the wake of the Mumbai carnage, however, figured during Holbrook's meeting with President Asif Ali Zardari.
