Washington: US on Thursday said it was
Pakistan`s "duty and obligation" to bring the perpetrators of
the 2008 Mumbai attacks to justice as quickly as possible.
Robert Blake, Assistant Secretary for South and
Central Asian Affairs, said the US has always taken LeT, the
terror outfit which carried out the 26/11 attacks, seriously.
"We have already taken them extremely serious and now
American counter-terrorism experts identify LeT as probably
the single most serious counter-terrorist threat after the
Al-Qaeda," he said.
Blake said President Barack Obama was "very
forthright" about LeT`s threat during his recent India visit.
"It is Pakistan`s duty and obligation to cooperate to
bring bring those who are responsible for the terrible 26/11
attacks to justice and to do so as quickly as possible.
Pakistan must address the problem," he said.
