'India surprised over Pakistan statement'
New Delhi, Mar 7: India on Sunday expressed surprise over Pakistan’s claim that the issue of arrest of Hafiz Saeed was not taken up during foreign secretary- level talks.
“Saeed’s activities including his recent vitriolic and venomous statements aimed at fomenting further acts of terrorism against India and the unhindered public space and freedom he enjoys in Pakistan was raised strongly by India during the Foreign Secretary-level talks,” said External Affairs Ministry spokesman said.
Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had claimed that India never demanded the arrest of Saeed nor discussed the issue at the talks between Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao and her Pakistani counterpart Salman Bashir here on February 25.
“A dossier containing a compilation of evidence on the involvement of Saeed in the terrorist attacks was handed over to Pakistan on August 21, 2009 and his name featured prominently in yet another dossier handed over to the Pakistan Foreign Secretary during the talks on February 25, 2010,” the statement said.
