Noting that Pakistan houses a syndicate of terrorism,US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said her country is watching the actions being taken by Islamabad against the scourge and expected that perpetrators of Mumbai attacks meet their day of reckoning.
She emphasised that terrorism is a threat to all,including those who have given haven to such elements,and every country should stand up to defeat the menace.
“We are certainly watching and expecting that there will be justice and those who launched the horrific attacks in Mumbai will meet their day of reckoning,” she said at an interaction with press.
Clinton,who will meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and hold talks with External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on Monday,said she realises that the syndicate of terrorism in Pakistan is troubling India,besides the US.
“I have also sent messages very directly to the Pakistani people that this (fight against terrorism) is in the interest of Pakistan,the future stability and security of Pakistan,” said the Secretary of State,who is on a five-day visit to India.
She said the US had “seen an evolving commitment,not only by Pakistani Government but also Pakistani people and a recognition that terrorism within a country is a threat to that country”.
