New Delhi, July 9(ANI): External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on Thursday said that the confession by Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari on nurturing of terrorists in his country has justified India's stand about terrorists originating form the neighbouring country.
Krishna said that India has repeatedly maintained that Pakistan's soil was being used for terrorist attacks on India.
The minister added that terrorism cannot be fought selectively and it has to be fought across the board and hoped that after the admission by the Pakistan President, Islamabad would make a determined effort to dismantle terrorism.
In his statement to both Houses of Parliament, Krishna said that Pakistan must expose and take action against conspirators of terror attacks launched in India from across the border as future of dialogue is premised on an atmosphere free of threat of violence.
Krishna emphasised that India has been repeatedly and severely hit by a series of terrorist attacks originating from Pakistan despite promise by Islamabad that its territory will not be used for such attacks.
The External Affairs Minister also said that it is the responsibility of Pakistan to take essential steps to deal with this concern and punish terrorists associated with Mumbai terror and other attacks. (ANI)
