Terror groups in Pak plotting more 26/11-like attacks: PM

As the first anniversary of the Mumbai attack nears, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said he receives intelligence inputs daily suggesting that Pakistan-based terrorists are plotting more 26/11-like strikes in India.

Terming as "tragic," Pakistan's use of terror as state policy, Singh said India is ready to resolve all outstanding issues with the country on the condition that it will not allow its territory to be used against its neighbour.

In an interview to the Washington Post ahead of his state visit to the US, Singh said India has been a victim of Pakistan-aided terrorism.

"Every day I receive intelligence reports saying that terrorists based in Pakistan are planning other similar acts (similar to 26/11)," Singh said in the interview that would be carried in the daily's print edition on Sunday - the day of his arrival here.

He, however, asserted that Pakistan has "nothing to fear" from India, and it was a "tragedy" that Pakistan has come to the point of using terror "as an instrument of state policy".

"We are committed to resolve all the outstanding issues with Pakistan through bilateral negotiations. Our only condition is that Pakistan should not allow its territory to be used for acts of terrorism against India.

"If Pakistan really honours that commitment, we can go back to negotiation to resolve all outstanding issues between us," he said.
