India on Tuesday reacted strongly to Pakistan terming New Delhi's demand for action against all those responsible in 26/11 Mumbai attacks as 'outdated,' saying the country was consistent about this and Pakistan knows this.

On India's demand for bringing masterminds of 26/11 to justice, Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao said, "The outdated word cannot apply. We are consistent about this and Pakistan knows this."

Pakistan Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir had described as 'outdated' India's demand for action against the perpetrators of the 2008 Mumbai attacks in wake of the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.

"At the same time, there is no denying the need for sober and reasoned dialogue between India and Pakistan on all issues that complicate our relation," Rao tweeted.
