India on Friday said the United Nations should ensure that Pakistan fulfills its commitment to end terrorism emanating from its soil.
External affairs minister Pranab Mukherjee said he had apprised UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon on Thursday about the details of the Mumbai attacks which were carried out by elements based in Pakistan.
"I had a detailed discussion (with Ban) in the context of the terror attack on Mumbai and the material which we have given to Pakistan and shared with the entire international community by sending letters to foreign ministers," he told reporters on the sidelines of a conference on the global financial crisis.
"I requested the UN secretary-general to look into those aspects and ensure that Pakistan fully implements its own commitments which it has given to India and the international community several times," Mukherjee said.
Mukherjee apprised Ban on the Mumbai attacks, how 10 heavily armed Pakistani terrorists came from Karachi via sea to Mumbai and struck terror in the city for three days from November 26 last year.
The minister also told Ban that India has concrete evidence to show that the attacks were planned in Pakistan and conducted by elements based in that country.
The dossier in this regard has already been given to Pakistan with an expectation that they would act against the perpetrators soon. An official reply from Pakistan is still awaited.
