Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao has said there was no “use by date” on India's demand for prosecution of all those involved in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks.

“The word ‘outdated' cannot apply. We are consistent about this and Pakistan knows this,” Ms. Rao tweeted late on Tuesday night. “At same time, there is no denying the need for sober and reasoned dialogue between India and Pakistan on all issues that complicate our relations,” she added.
