Pakistan should conduct a "full investigation" into the Mumbai attacks and cooperate with India in bringing the perpetrators of the terrorist incident to justice, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon said on Wednesday.
<b1>Addressing a news conference with Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, Moon said he had told the premier "that the Pakistani government should have a full investigation into this issue and fully cooperate with the Indian government".
Moon was replying to a question on whether he was satisfied with Pakistan's compliance of resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council after the Mumbai attacks.
The resolutions outlawed the Jamaat-ud-Dawah, a front for the Lashker-e-Taiba terror group, and placed four LeT leaders on a list of entities and individuals facing sanctions for terrorist links.
In his opening statement Moon called for resumption of the peace process between India and Pakistan, which was suspended by New Delhi in the wake of the Mumbai incident.
Noting the "complexities of regional relations particularly in the aftermath of the Mumbai attacks", Moon said he had stressed to Gilani and "other interlocutors the importance of maintaining rapprochement between India and Pakistan that has taken its own momentum in the last several years".
