PTI 27 Sep 2009, 1:30:59 AM IST

Disappointed over the tardy progress into the Mumbai terror strikes, India has appealed to the international community that they had the "collective responsibility and duty" to ensure that the perpetrators of such barbaric terrorist attack are brought to justice.

"The barbaric terrorist attack on the innocent people of Mumbai on November 26, 2008 reminds us of the daily and malignant menace that terrorism poses to all countries," External Affairs Minister S M Krishna said at the UN General Assembly meeting on Saturday.

"There cannot be any justification whatsoever for such mindless terrorist acts. It is our collective responsibility and duty to work together to ensure that terrorists, organisers, perpetrators and supporters of such crimes are brought to justice," he said ahead of his meeting with Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.

He recalled that India had proposed the text of Comprehensive Convention on International Terrorism. "It is time that the Convention be finally adopted," he said.

India is unhappy with the Pakistan's response in probing Mumbai terror attacks and had suspended the composite dialogue process with it last year. India says resumption of talks to Pakistan depends on it taking action against the perpetrators of the assault. PTI
