Bangalore, Sep 5 (ANI): External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna attacked Pakistan on Saturday by calling it epicentre of terror in this region, and said it's for Islamabad to decide what kind of ties it wants with India.

Speaking to the media here, Krishna said: "Pakistan is an epicenter of terror in this region. We told this to Pakistan as well and also to our friendly countries."

Krishna also criticized the approach of the Pakistan Government towards the perpetrators of 26/11 attacks on Mumbai.

"India has provided enough evidence against the conspirators of the Mumbai attack. If Pakistan is serious on terror then this is the time to show that they are," Krishna said.

He added "There is enough, substantive information available with Pakistan. We would like Pakistan to take action."

On Friday, Pakistan described the latest dossier provided by India on 26/11 attacks as a rehash of information contained in previous documents, indicating that it is inadequate for taking action against Jamat- ud- Dawa (JuD) founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed.

Regarding the resumption of composite dialogue with Pakistan, Krishna said, " India was happily continuing with the composite dialogue, but after the Mumbai attacks it suspended the composite dialogue. It was Pakistan to be blamed for the suspension of the dialogue."

"Now it is left to Pakistan to put efforts for the resumption of composite dialogue," Krishna added. (ANI)
