7th December 2010, Comments 1 comment

French President Nicolas Sarkozy said Tuesday that it was "unacceptable" that terror networks could find "safe havens" in Pakistan, as he paid tribute to victims of the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

He said that the Taliban and Al-Qaeda were able to find "safe havens" in the frontier areas of Pakistan.

"It is unacceptable... that terrorist acts should be masterminded and carried out by terrorist groups in Pakistan," Sarkozy said in Mumbai on the final day of his four-day trip to India.

"I call on all Pakistani authorities to step up their efforts and show that they are resolute in combating these criminals."
