Talks Only After Mumbai Attackers Are Punished: Farooq

Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy Farooq Abdullah on Saturday  said talks between India and Pakistan can resume only when our neighbouring country takes action against those involved in Mumbai attacks.

"Indian stand is that terrorism be wiped out and those involved in Mumbai attack be punished," he told reporters in reply to a question after attending a function organised by JK Peace Foundation (JKPF) on the occasion of 'Shaheedi Divas' of father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi in Jammu . 

When India feels that Pakistan has taken action against the perpetrators of Mumbai attack, talks will resume, he said.  On continued infiltration attempts along the International Border (IB) and Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, he said our forces are ready to foil their attempts.

When his attention was drawn to Zardari's statement that the turmoil in J-K is ideological, the Union Minister said, "Some statements are for consumption of their own people and they say what they want for them." PTI
