Port of Spain, Nov 29: Foriegn Ministers of India and Pakistan were in the capital of Trinidad and Tobago, but did not meet for any talks, indicating a deepening chill in their ties.

Indian External Affairs Minister SM Krishna and his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi were in the Trinidad capital to attend the foreign ministers meeting of the Commonwealth countries.

With India making it clear that Pakistan needs to do more to punish the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks, there was little hope of any attempt at diplomatic contact to resume the stalled dialogue.

Four days ago, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said in Washington that his government would not rest till the perpetrators of the Mumbai terrorist attacks are brought to justice.

The Prime Minister had stressed that since the conspiracy was basically hatched in Pakistan, it was their obligation to punish the masterminds of 26/11 attacks.
