France, India call on Pakistan to prosecute terrorists


NEW DEHLI: France joined India on Monday in demanding Pakistan bring to justice the perpetrators of the Pathankot airbase and the November 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks even as the Indian president said that dialogue can bridge disagreements but not under a ‘shower of bullets’.

The call came as French President Francois Hollande met Indian PM Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Monday. Hollande is in India to attend the 67th Republic Day ceremony on January 26 (today) – just as US President Barack Obama had visited India last year.
