It’s ‘serious’, proves our stand: Sitharaman
New Delhi: Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Sunday dubbed former Pakistan’s prime minister Nawaz Sharif public acknowledgment of militant operations in his country as “a serious disclosure” and said it proved India’s position that the handlers of 26/11 Mumbai attack were in Pakistan.
“Well, it is very serious disclosure. India’s position has been that the mastermind of the Mumbai terror attack operated from Pakistan. We strongly believe that the handlers of the attack were in Pakistan,” Sitharaman told a press conference here, in response to a query.
“It (Sharif’s remarks) only proves that India’s stand has been right all the way,” she said.
