Islambad, Jul 15: Indian Home secretary GK Pillai's remarks linking ISI to the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks has dampened the mood ahead of the three-day Indo-Pak talks between the External Affairs Ministers of the neighbouring countries.

Pakistan on Wednesday, Jul 14 expressed disappointment over the remarks made by GK Pillai quoting the Laskhar-e-Toiba operative, David Coleman Headley.

"The remarks are very disappointing, especially coming on the eve of Indo-Pak talks," a top official in the Pakistan government said.

Citing information extracted by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and India's National Investigative Agency (NIA) sleuths from Headley, Pillai had said that ISI had a "much more significant" role to play in 26/11 than estimated before.

The Pakistani-American terrorist held in Chicago has reportedly disclosed extensive role of the Pakistani spy agency and JuD chief Hafiz Saeed during interrogation.

External Affairs Minister, SM Krishna landed in Pakistan on Wednesday, Jul 14 to hold talks with his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mahmood Qureshi.

India is expected to continue pressing for action against the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror strike and other extremist elements operating from Pakistan.
