India is expected to convey its unhappiness over the dilly-dallying by Pakistani authorities in taking action against JuD chief Hafiz Saeed to US Under-Secretary of State William Burns, who has arrived here for a two-day visit.
New Delhi considers Saeed as the mastermind of the 26/11 attacks though Pakistan has been claiming that there is not much evidence against him, as a result of which he continues to be a free man.
The status of investigation into the Mumbai terror strikes is expected to be discussed when the two sides review bilateral ties.
Burns will meet External Affairs Minister S M Krishna and National Security Advisor M K Narayanan and hold talks with Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao.
During the meetings, the two sides will also discuss aspects related to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s visit to Washington next month.
While sharing India’s concern over the terrorist threat that could emanate from Pakistan, US Ambassador Timothy Roemer yesterday sought prosecution of seven suspects of the Mumbai attacks, including Saeed.
“It is very important that Pakistan prosecutes successfully the seven suspects of the Mumbai attacks, take the facts and evidence about Hafiz Saeed and prosecute him,” he had said.
