External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna on Saturday assured Pakistan that it would keep Pakistan posted with additional information about the Mumbai terror attacks “as and when” it was collected.
Mr. Krishna was reflecting the positive attitude adopted by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in interacting with Pakistan on the attack issue following the detailed dossier submitted by Pakistan on July 11, said South Block sources.
“We are in continuous touch with the government of Pakistan. It is an ongoing exercise between India and Pakistan. So, as and when we collect more evidence we will keep sending it across to Pakistan, and that is what the Foreign Secretary did yesterday [on Friday],” observed Mr. Krishna.
The statement comes a day after India gave additional information to Pakistan on the attacks.
India has indicated its willingness to engage on the terror issue even as Pakistan is sending out signals on the need for a wider engagement.
In four phases so far, India has provided inputs on the terror suspects and the logistics, including communication used by those involved in carrying out the attacks in Mumbai. They also contained responses to several queries raised by Pakistan relating to the lone surviving terrorist, Ajmal Kasab, and others.
