Manmohan Singh told Obama while peace initiatives had their place; it was for Pakistan to show whether it was serious about using that information to tackle terrorism.

LeT terrorist David Headley also came up for discussion during the meeting, said Rao.

"Both India and the United States have a mutual interest in ensuring that the information coming out of this interrogation is taken seriously by Pakistan with the view to control and eliminate terrorist elements surfacing from its soil, which affects the stability of the region," added Rao.
