India and the US are expected to discuss progress on probe into Mumbai attacks, particularly in context of actions taken by Pakistan, when Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon meets officials in Washington on Monday.
Menon, who is in the US, will meet his counterpart Under Secretary of State William Burns and discuss the problem of terrorism, aspects related to the civil nuclear deal and issues related to the upcoming G-20 meeting, sources said here.
The issue of threat posed by terrorism emanating from Pakistan is expected to figure prominently in the discussions, they said.
In this context, the two sides are expected to discuss the progress made in investigations into the Mumbai attacks.
Actions taken by Pakistan in this regard will be deliberated upon and Menon is expected to apprise Burns about India's assessment of the steps taken by Islamabad.
Pakistan has arrested some Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) leaders and some others but India is maintaining that it wants to see the steps to be taken to logical end by bringing them to justice in sincere and transparent manner.
Underlining that Pakistan must dismantle the terror infrastructure existing on its soil, New Delhi contends that Islamabad has not taken adequate steps in this regard.
