For the first time, Sharif also questioned Pakistan's policy to allow the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai, according to a media report. "PPP rejects Nawaz Sharif's statement and stance [on Mumbai attacks]".

"I am fully cognizant of the complete phases of the Mumbai attacks case".

It may be noted that the relations between the military - the parent organisation of the notorious Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), which planned and coordinated the Mumbai terror attacks - and the Sharif government were at its lowest ebb in October 2016 when the latter told the former to act against homegrown militant groups or face global isolation.

The Congress today asked the government to take diplomatic measures to highlight before the worldwide community the involvement of Pakistan in terror activities in India following its former prime minister Nawaz Sharif?s admission on militant groups being active in the neighbouring country.

Defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Sunday dubbed as a "serious disclosure" Pakistan's ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif publicly acknowledging that militant organisations were active in his country and said it proved India's position that the handlers of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack were in Pakistan. Explain it to me. "But it is absolutely something which has to be thrown to the whole world to see, so that they know that all the lectures that Pakistan gives to the whole world about human rights and about how Pakistan itself is a victim, is all bogus", she added.

"Why didn't Nawaz also say that Pakistan tried [very] hard to cooperate with India in the Mumbai trials?" she continued.

India has accused the Pakistani military of supporting terrorists to wage a proxy war. Only one of the terrorists, Ajmal Kasab, could be caught alive.

Pakistan has so far not completed trial in the 26/11 case.

He also blamed India for showing aggression and refusing to cooperate during the investigation into the case. India has maintained that it was Lashkar-e-Taiba's terrorists who sailed into Mumbai from Karachi to carry out the attacks in an operation that was coordinated by the Pakistani intelligence agency, ISI.

Rehman emphasised the need of a foreign minister and said it was regrettable that the country did not have a foreign minister for four years.

"Nawaz thinks he has no immunity".
