Asking Islamabad [Images] to end cross-border terrorism, the Consul General of India in Toronto said all the bases of terror outfits in Pakistan must be demolished to maintain international peace and security.
"Islamabad must end cross border terrorism, stop harbouring and training terrorists, and demolish Lashkar-e-Tayiba [Images] camps completely," Preeti Saran, Consul General of India said while addressing over 100 top executives of Canadian companies at a function on Thursday.
"Today the biggest challenge before the international community is to ensure that terror outfits like the LeT are completely dismantled. The sponsors, trainers and financiers of such crimes must be condemned for converting our
neighborhood into an epicentre of terrorism. Otherwise this Frankenstein will consume the world," she said.
She said that Pakistan must hand over "conspirators of Mumbai [Images] attacks" to face trial in India and comply with its
promise to stop terrorist groups from functioning inside its territory.
There was a need for global strategies to fight terrorism, and international community must follow uniform
standards, Saran added.
Referring to the current global meltdown, she said that this could be used as an opportunity to introspect and forge a
new partnership to deepen economic and educational ties particularly in the field of nuclear energy, infrastructure,
and clean coal technology.
