External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna met his Pakistani counterpart Hina Rabbani Khar here on Sunday and strongly raised the issue of anti-India activities being carried out from Pakistani soil and said that New Delhi has given additional concrete evidence of the same.
Krishna, who met Khar on the sidelines of a conference on Afghanistan in Tokyo, asked Pakistan to take steps to check terror activities directed against India. During the meeting, Krishna asserted that India has provided additional concrete evidence of such activities.
Official sources said that recent revelations by Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal, the LeT operative who allegedly handled those involved in the 26/11 carnage in Mumbai, the continued anti-India propaganda by LeT founder Hafiz Saeed and release of Sarabjit Singh were among the important issues that figured in the Krishna-Khar talks, which came two days after their foreign secretaries’ meeting in New Delhi.
During the secretary-level talks, Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai had shared with his counterpart Jalil Abbas Jilani the information gathered from Ansari who revealed that he, along with Saeed, was in the control room in Pakistan during the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
