American, Chinese foreign ministers call up Pranab
December 26, 2008 12:12 IST
During the telephonic conversations on Thursday night, Mukherjee is understood to have conveyed to his counterparts that Pakistan was not doing enough against those behind the Mumbai carnage.
He is believed to have told Rice and the Chinese Foreign Minister to put pressure on Pakistan to ensure that those responsible for the Mumbai attacks are brought to justice. Rice is understood to have conveyed to Mukherjee that the US is keen to see that the perpetrators of Mumbai attacks are punished and is persuading Pakistan to act in concrete terms in this regard.
Though most countries, including the US and the UK, are convinced that Lashkar-e-Taiba was responsible for the attacks, Pakistan has been in a denial mode.
