India to share evidence with Pak on ISI role
New Delhi, Oct 25: India will share with Pakistan the evidences of ISI involvement in the 7/11 Mumbai bomb blasts as the two countries will discuss, among other issues, the recently-announced Joint Working Mechanism on Terrorism at the upcoming Foreign Secretary-level talks here from November 13 to 15.
External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee, who took charge this morning, told reporters in a brief interaction that Indian law-enforcement agencies had gathered some evidences about ISI involvement in 7/11 Mumbai bomb blasts and the government would share these with Pakistan.
''We can't alter our neighbours...we have to live in peace and create a tension-free situation in the region,'' the former Defence Minister said.
''Our law enforcement agencies have gathered some evidences (about 7/11 Mumbai blasts). We will share these with Pakistan,'' he said.
National Security Advisor (NSA) M K Narayanan recently said in a television interview that although not ''clinching'', India had ''pretty good'' evidence of ISI involvement in Mumbai blasts.
Later, speaking to reporters, Minister of State for External Affairs Anand Sharma said the Joint Working Mechanism on Terrorism, agreed upon between the two countries, and peace and security in Jammu and Kashmir would be part of the agenda of the Foreign Secretary- level talks being held here next month.
''The Foreign Secretaries will be discussing everything...'' he added.
