New York, Sep 22: External Affairs Minister SM Krishna on Tuesday, Sep 22, said Pakistan should act swiftly against alleged Mumbai terror attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed.
"India would be interested to see how Pakistan proceeds with reference to the Mumbai terror attacks. He (Saeed) was the brain behind that attack on India. So I think we expect Pakistan to act swiftly," Krishna said
He said India's position has always been consistent that those responsible for the Mumbai attack be brought to justice.
When asked about Pakistan having reported put Saeed under house arrest, Krishna said, "I think there are conflicting reports. I am waiting for a fuller report of the actual position."
Krishna and Qureshi are expected to meet on the sidelines of the New York General Assembly on Sep 27 in the latest high-level contact between the two countries.
