The Indian and British Prime Ministers spoke on Thursday of a new momentum towards closer trade and security ties. But it was David Cameron's earlier comments on terrorism within Pakistan that dominated much of the questioning.
British Prime Minister David Cameron says Britain will help Pakistan further its efforts to crack down on terrorism.
David Cameron, British Prime Minister, said, "What we will continue to do is work with the Pakistan government to do everything we can to encourage them to crack down and to take on these groups that have caused so much pain and so much suffering."
The comments resonated with India, which has long accused arch-rival Pakistan of being behind terror attacks on its soil.
Manmohan Singh, Indian Prime Minister, said, "We believe Pakistan should be as serious in paying attention to terror on the western borders of Pakistan as on the eastern borders, on our side. And I sincerely hope that world community will use its good offices to promote this cause."
Singh said he was hopeful of improving ties with Pakistan. But he refused to be drawn into a debate on whether the latest meeting between the foreign ministers of both countries had failed or not.
On Wednesday, David Cameron accused Islamabad of double standards, by making alliances with the west while harboring terrorist groups. He also said that Pakistan should not "promote the export of terror".
His comments have caused anger in Islamabad.
Pakistan's foreign minister said on Thursday he was saddened by the remarks. He claims the comments were fueled by information contained in recent leaked US documents, which accuse Pakistani intelligence agencies of having direct contact with Taliban insurgents.
Pakistan says no one can draw correct conclusions from what it calls "misguided reports".
