Washington D.C.:USINPAC commends the Trump Administration for standing with India, especially on the 10th anniversary of the 26/11 terrorist attacks on Mumbai that claimed the lives of 166 people. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on “all countries, particularly Pakistan, to uphold their U.N. Security Council obligations to implement sanctions against the terrorists responsible for this atrocity, including Lashkar-e-Taiba and its affiliates.” Pompeo also offered a substantial reward on behalf of the United States for information leading to the arrest or conviction of any individual who was involved in the planning or facilitating of the attack. Pakistan has consistently denied involvement.
Mr. Sanjay Puri, Chairman of US India Political Action Committee (USINPAC) noted, “As Indians and Indian Americans, we must never forget the Mumbai terrorist attack. The attack shocked the entire world. Ten years out, it is a shame that those who planned the attack still have not been convicted but India will defeat terrorism. On behalf of USINPAC, I thank President Trump, PM Modi and Secretary Pompeo for their strong stance and commitment in promising to never let terrorists win. I also extend my deepest condolences to the families who lost their loved ones on that tragic day.”
