Friend and Ally Update: “Credible evidence’ of Pak involvement in 7/11 blasts: PM,” from ZeeNews.com, with thanks to DFS:
New Delhi, Oct 24: In the midst of a controversy over National Security Advisor M K Narayanan’s comments, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday said there was “credible evidence” of Pakistani involvement in the July 11 train blasts in Mumbai.
“All I can say is that there is credible evidence”, he told reporters who asked him about the comments made by Narayanan that there was “pretty good” but not “clinching” evidence of ISI’s involvement while Union Home Secretary V K Duggal spoke of fairly solid evidence.
On the Indo-Pak joint mechanism to fight terrorism, he Said, “it is a trial. We have to experiment… we have to talk as we are not going to war with Pakistan”.
Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee, who will be the new External Affairs Minister, said India will share information with Pakistan regarding the Mumbai blasts and see the response from the other side.
“We will exchange information with Pakistan. After that we have to see how they react,” he said.
No doubt with outrage and obfuscation.
