India Pm firm with Obama about Pak terror

India on Monday told the US that Pakistan should realise the importance of the disclosures made by LeT operative David Headley and take action against terrorism emanating from its soil directed towards it. India’s concerns were conveyed by Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, to US President, Mr Barack Obama, during a half-hour meeting between them on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit here. Briefing reporters about the meeting, the foreign secretary, Ms Nirupama Rao, said the two leaders discussed the situation in the region and they spoke of counter-terrorism in Afghanistan to stabilise the situation there. Singh briefed Obama about the peace initiatives with Pakistan but made it clear that Islamabad should abide by its commitment of not not to allow terrorism emanating from its soil directed against India. The activities of Headley came up for discussion. The Prime Minister told Mr Obama that while peace initiatives had their place, it was for Pakistan to show whether it was serious about using that information to tackle terrorism in the region
