Donald Trump on Monday (26) said that the United States of America stands with India on its quest for justice.
Trump made this statement on the 10th anniversary of the Mumbai terrorist attack, which led to the death of 166 people, including six US nationals.
“On the ten-year anniversary of the Mumbai terror attack, the US stands with the people of India in their quest for justice,” Trump tweeted. “The attack killed 166 innocents, including six Americans. We will never let terrorists win, or even come close to winning!” he said.
Kia Scherr, whose husband and a 13-year-old daughter were killed in the attack, thanked the president for his tweet.
“May this day serve to remind us that love overpowers hate. This is the strength no bullet can kill. This is our true power. Thank you,” she said.
The US has also called on Pakistan to bring to justice the LeT operatives responsible for the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
“We call upon all countries, particularly Pakistan, to do their parts in bringing the perpetrators to justice. All countries must uphold their international obligations to take action against this UN sanctioned terrorist group and its leaders,” said Nathan Sales, State Department’s coordinator for counterterrorism in his brief remark.
A day earlier, the State Department had announced a reward offer of $5 million for information on the masterminds behind the barbaric attacks.
Sales said, “With this, we remind the world that we have not forgotten those who perished 10 years ago and we will not rest until the perpetrators are brought to justice.”
