New Delhi, Aug 24(ANI): Union External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on Monday expressed India's concern over terrorism and said that it was high time Pakistan dismantled terror from its soil.

"India is willing to cooperate with Pakistan, including addressing each other's security concerns. But, the biggest impediment is and continues to be that Pakistan side is being used by terrorists who have attacked India repeatedly and those terrorist infrastructure are not being dismantled," Krishna said while speaking to media persons in the national capital.

"I think that is the cause of concern for us and we are still hoping that Pakistan would realise that is about time they should react favourably to India," he added.

Earlier on Friday, Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao had given the sixth dossier to Pakistan's High Commissioner Shahid Malik regarding last year's Mumbai terror attack, which claimed at least 166 lives.

India has insisted that Pakistan has enough evidence to successfully prosecute leaders of the Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group, including Hafiz Saeed, who was detained in the wake of the Mumbai attacks after a UN Security Council resolution put him on a list of people and organisations supporting Al-Qaeda.

Saeed was later released by the Lahore High Court on grounds of insufficient evidence. (ANI)
