Pakistan to India: come clean on Mumbai attacks

world Updated: Feb 13, 2009 20:02 IST

Claiming that India's stand on the Mumbai attacks is getting 'mixed with compulsions of domestic politics,' Pakistan on Friday asked New Delhi to 'come clean' on Indian individuals and entities responsible for 'acts of commission and omission'.

Reacting to External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee's statement in Lok Sabha on Pakistan's response to the Indian dossier, Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said his "remarks are essentially a rehash of the standard Indian line against Pakistan".

"We have a distinct sense that the reality of the Mumbai terrorist attacks, which were wholeheartedly condemned by the international community and Pakistan, is getting increasingly mixed with compulsions of domestic politics in India," Basit said in a statement.

"The government of Pakistan expects India to come clean on the multiple facets of the Mumbai tragedy and expose the names of persons and entities in India who were also responsible for acts of commission and omission in a transparent manner," he said.

Speaking in the Lok Sabha, Mukherjee had described Pakistan's response to the dossier which was delivered on Thursday as a 'positive development' as Pakistani authorities had admitted that elements in this country were involved in the Mumbai attacks.
