Ahead of the meeting between Indian and Pakistani leaders during a nonaligned summit in Egypt next week, India Thursday made it clear that the dialogue is premised on an atmosphere free of the threat of violence and asked Islamabad to take all steps that are necessary to address the issue of cross-border terrorism, reported Indian news agency IANS. Indicating Indias willingness to engage Pakistan, External Affairs Minister SM Krishna told parliament Thursday that the relationship between India and Pakistan can be a critical building block in its larger vision of a cooperative and harmonious subcontinent. However, dialogue addressing mutual concerns is premised on an atmosphere free of violence, he said in a pointed message to Pakistan. Despite achievements, the dialogue and relationship with Pakistan have come under stress recurrently because of the license which terrorists have had in Pakistan to carry out attacks against India, he stressed. Accusing Pakistan of reneging on its 2004 anti-terror pledge, Krishna said despite these assurances, we have been repeatedly and severely hit by a series of terror attacks from Pakistan. It is the responsibility of the government of Pakistan to take all such steps as are necessary to address this issue and expose and take action against the conspiracies and conspirators responsible for such attacks, Krishna said. Unfortunately, terrorists in Pakistan continue attacks against India, he added. After the foreign secretaries report, we will be able to take stock of the situation, Krishna said. The meeting will discuss what Pakistan is doing and can do to prevent terrorism from Pakistan against India and to bring to justice those responsible for these attacks, including the horrendous crime of the attacks in Mumbai, he said.
