New Delhi: The Congress on Tuesday welcomed the
outcome of the India-Pakistan Home Secretary-level talks and
hoped that the judicial commission would help speed up the
26/11 trial to bring to justice the perpetrators of the
dastardly attacks in Mumbai.

"We hope that the judicial commission will definitely help
in solving the 26/11 case and those behind the dastardly
attacks would be brought to justice," Congress spokesman
Manish Tewari told reporters here.

He hoped Pakistan would extend cooperation to the judicial
commission with regard to the investigations into the 26/11
attacks.

Pakistan today agreed to allow an Indian commission to
visit the country in connection with 26/11 Mumbai terror
attack case probe there.

Pakistan, which had been dragging its feet on allowing
Indian investigators on its soil in relation to probing the
source of the Mumbai attack, expressed its readiness during a
meeting between Home Secretaries of the two countries which
ended today.

"The Pakistan side provided updates on the ongoing trial
and investigation in Pakistan on the Mumbai terror attacks.
Pakistan conveyed its readiness, in-principle, based upon the
principle of comity and reciprocity, to entertain a Commission
from India with respect to Mumbai terror attack
investigations," said a joint statement issued after the
talks.
