Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh says the terrorists who
carried out the deadly attacks in Mumbai in November "must have had the
support of some official agencies in Pakistan."
Mr. Singh made the accusation (Tuesday) during a security conference in New Delhi. He claimed Islamabad is stoking "war hysteria."
The Pakistani Foreign Ministry released a statement rejecting Mr. Singh's remarks as little more than a "propaganda offensive."
Meanwhile, India is continuing diplomatic efforts to ramp up international pressure on Islamabad to crack down on terrorists.
India's Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon (Tuesday) briefed some 50 envoys from Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America about evidence from the Mumbai attacks. He gave similar briefings to representatives from 15 other countries, including the United States, on Monday.
That same day, India turned over evidence to Pakistan that New Delhi says proves the attacks were carried out by Pakistani nationals armed and trained by the Pakistan-based militant group, Lashkar-e-Taiba.
