India today said that it will continue to make every effort to seek justice for the families of the victims and the martyrs of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. External Affairs Ministry said it is a matter of deep anguish that even after 13 years of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, the families of victims from 15 countries across the globe still await justice. The Ministry said Pakistan is showing little sincerity in bringing the perpetrators to justice. It has once again called on the Government of Pakistan to give up its double standards and to expeditiously bring the perpetrators of the horrific attack to justice. It said this is not just a matter of Pakistan’s accountability to the families of the innocent victims who fell to terrorists, but also an international obligation as the terrorist attack was planned, executed, and launched from Pakistani territory.
A senior diplomat from the High Commission of Pakistan in India was summoned by the Ministry of External Affairs today. A note verbale reiterating India’s call for an expeditious trial in the Mumbai terror attacks case and to abide by its commitment to not allow territories under its control for terrorism against India was handed over to him.
In 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, fourteen other countries lost their nationals in these attacks. Indian Missions in these countries are organizing memorial events remembering the victims, both national and foreign, reminding the world of the continuing global threat of terrorism.
