U.S. Ambassador to India Timothy J. Roemer addresses a press conference at the American Centre in Mumbai on Thursday. “Swift and lengthy punishment for six suspects of Mumbai attacks in Pakistan is important for the U.S. and India,” Roemer said after meeting Home Minister P. Chidambaram in New Delhi on Friday.

Piling up pressure on Pakistan, the United States on Friday said it was important that “swift and lengthy” punishment should be slapped on six Mumbai terror attack suspects, including LeT founder Hafiz Saeed, in that country.

“Swift and lengthy punishment for six suspects of Mumbai attacks in Pakistan is important for the U.S. and India,” U.S. Ambassador Timothy J. Roemer told reporters after meeting Home Minister P. Chidambaram here.

The U.S. envoy’s comments came ahead of the meeting of Foreign Ministers of India and Pakistan in New York on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly session.

The Ambassador said it was important for the U.S. and India that action is taken against the LeT founder and terror infrastructure in Pakistan is dismantled.

“Going after Hafiz Saeed and dismantling terror infrastructure in that region is extremely important for both U.S. and India,” he said.
