Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 24 February 2009

21. To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent discussions he has had with his counterpart in Pakistan on steps that country could take with India to prosecute all those involved in the terrorist attacks on Mumbai. (257935)

My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary last discussed the Mumbai attacks with Pakistani Foreign Minister Qureshi on 7 February 2009. The recent steps Pakistan has taken towards prosecution of those responsible are welcome. The UK will continue to press the Government of Pakistan for faster and further progress, and for effective action to break up the terrorist networks operating within its borders.
