Islamabad, Jan. 10 (ANI): British Foreign Secretary David Miliband has said that Pakistan should have moved faster in prosecuting the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attacks.
The Daily Times quoted Miliband as saying that it was vital for improvement of Indo-Pak ties that Islamabad holds a speedy trial of the alleged perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks, and ensure that they are brought to justice.
He admitted that there is no point in hiding the fact that after the Mumbai attacks, when he was here in January 2009, he felt that Pakistan should have moved faster.
"Today people are on trial, which is significant and important. This process should be seen through and those guilty should be punished. The Mumbai attacks were a great setback," he said while addressing a joint news conference with Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi here on Saturday.
Miliband also said peace and security in Afghanistan depends on security and stability in Pakistan.
"Security, stability and prosperity in Afghanistan depends on security, stability and prosperity in Pakistan," he said. (ANI)
