New Delhi, Jul 30: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh criticised the Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Thursday, Jul 29 for the failure on the Indo-Pak talks held in Islamabad earlier this month.
The press conference in new Delhi with British Prime Minister David Cameron, Dr Singh said Qureshi was not to the point in discussing the terror attacks and Indo-Pak relationship.
"His comments were too close to the event to pass a judgment on the meeting. The way the press conference was handled by Pakistan Foreign minister could have been avoided because it detracts from larger elements of agreement reached," the Prime Minister said.
After 9/11 the world realised that terrorism constitutes a serious threat to civilised societies and no cause could justify it said Dr.Singh
"I sincerely hope that the government of Pakistan will honour its commitments given to me and my predecessor that Pakistan will not allow its territory to be used for terror activities," Dr Singh added.
Together with Dr. Singh's criticism British Prime Minister David Cameron said that his country "will not accept any terror group within Pakistan".
"We will encourage Pakistan to crack down on terror groups," Cameron said while addressing a joint press conference with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi on Thursday, Jul 29.
At the same time, Cameron said "we must be fair to Pak, as they have taken anti-terror steps".
In an exclusive interview to NDTV's Prannoy Roy on Wednesday,Jul 28, Cameron said, "It's unacceptable for anything to happen in Pakistan that is responsible for promotion of terrorism elsewhere.
