Stressing for action: Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh at the Congress plenary meet in Delhi
INDIA’S Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh said yesterday that friendly ties with Pakistan can only come when Islamabad ensures its soil is not used for “terrorist” activities against Indian targets.“We want friendly relations with Pakistan. But we know this will be possible only when our neighbour will see to it that its territory is not used for terrorist activities against us,” Dr Singh told a ruling Congress party meeting.India is still pressing Pakistan to bring to justice the alleged masterminds of the attacks in which 10 gunmen attacked a host of targets including luxury hotels, a Jewish centre and a train station. Nine of the gunmen were killed and the sole survivor was condemned to death by a Mumbai court in May.Dr Singh’s remarks came as the Congress party passed a resolution that called on Pakistan to “deliver with sincerity on its assurances to dismantle terror outfits.”Dr Singh also said there was “great potential for working together with China, especially in economic matters.”Speaking on the heels of last week’s visit by his Chinese counterpart to New Delhi, the prime minister said India has “some outstanding issues with them (the Chinese) which we hope to resolve in an atmosphere of friendship.”
