'Don't look at Mumbai attacks through prism of Kashmir'
December 16, 2008 14:46 IST
With pressure mounting on Pakistan to act against the sources of terror responsible for the Mumbai attacks, India on Tuesday said Islamabad [Images] should follow up its promise to the global community with action.
"We expect that good sense will prevail and we expect that the assurances that are coming (from Pakistan) will translate into action. Because assurances are coming from established leadership of that country, we expect conducive atmosphere will prevail to act on the promises made," Mukherjee said, responding to questions.
"It is not a Kashmir issue. It is not merely an issue between Pakistan and India. It is about global war against terrorism," Mukherjee said, referring to the 60-hour-long siege of Mumbai landmarks beginning November 26 that claimed 183 lives.
"We should not look at the issue through the prism of Indo-Pak relations or the prism of Kashmir," he said.
