New Delhi: Endorsing India`s stand that
no cause is good enough to justify terrorism, Britain today
said that it will discuss with Pakistan "frankly, clearly and
openly" on the need to reduce and eliminate terror from India.

Addressing a joint press conference with Prime
Minister Manmohan Singh at the end of their discussions,
visiting British PM David Cameron said, "we want to work with
Pakistan to make it fight LeT and Afghan or Pakistan Taliban.

"Pakistan government has taken steps and it needs to
take further steps to reduce terrorism in Afghanistan, India
and the streets of London."

He was replying to a question as to what the
international community would do to see that Pakistan does not
export terror, especially to India, as stated by him in
Bangalore yesterday.

At the same time, he said Pakistan should be
encouraged to take steps to see that terror is reduced.

"I think the right thing is to have discussion with
Pakistan frankly, clearly and openly. Next week, I will have
discussions with President of Pakistan," he said.

On his part, Singh said expressed the hope that
Pakistan would honour its commitment not to allow its
territory for terror against India given to him and his
predecessors.

"We believe that Pakistan should be as serious in
tackling terrorism on its western border as on the eastern
borders. I sincerely hope that the world community would use
its good offices to promote this," Singh said.
