India on Friday summoned a diplomat of the Pakistan High Commission to press for an expeditious trial in the Mumbai terror attacks case on a day the government and Indian missions across the world held memorial events.

“It is a matter of deep anguish that even after 13 years of this heinous terror attack, the families of 166 victims from 15 countries across the globe still await closure, with Pakistan showing little sincerity in bringing the perpetrators to justice,” the external affars ministry said in a statement.

Later, briefing the media, ministry spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said New Delhi was examining Pakistan’s offer to allow 50,000 metric tonnes of wheat and medicines to be ferried across Pakistani soil into Afghanistan for humanitarian assistance.

“We believe that humanitarian assistance should not be subject to conditionalities,” Bagchi said without specifying what the conditionalities were.
