India Ready To Attack Pakistan? 120 Indian Envoys Will Meet In New Delhi

. 12/22/08

For the first time ever, 120 heads of Indian missions across the world will meet in New Delhi on Monday and Tuesday to discuss Mumbai terror attacks and its aftermath.

External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee will inaugurate the meet and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will address the envoys on Tuesday.

India's diplomatic strategy post 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks especially the need to put more pressure on Pakistan will be the top agenda at the meet.

Mukherjee will also brief the envoys on the diplomatic offensive mounted against Pakistan by India following the Mumbai terror attacks.

The meet will also be an opportunity for the Indian Government to get a feedback on the next steps in its action against Pakistan, including the possibility of a military strike.

The government will be looking with particular interest at inputs from envoys posted in West Asia and China, countries and regions regarded as friendly to Pakistan.

Though there have been regional conferences in the past, this is the first time that 120 heads of Indian missions from across the globe are meeting.

Mukherjee has already warned Pakistan that India was keeping all options open against Pakistan is it does not act against terror groups based on its soil.

India's diplomatic offensive has already got support from the major powers of the world including the United States of America, Britain, France and Russia.

Many other countries have also backed India's charges that Pakistan-trained Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists carried out the Mumbai terror attacks.
