The US on Wednesday made it clear that India’s patience would be “limited” if it faces a Mumbai-type attack again as it warned that Lashkar-e-Taiba was working in league with al-Qaeda to destabilise the region and provoke an Indo-Pak military confrontation.
Defence Secretary Robert Gates, who discussed the serious threat posed by terrorism to the region with Prime Minister
Manmohan Singh and Defence Minister AK Antony, emphasised the need for “high level of cooperation” from all countries to
defeat the “syndicate” of terror, including the LeT, the Taliban and the Tehreek-e-Taliban under the command of al-Qaeda.
He said the syndicate had “home and safe haven” in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border areas and that there was need to recognise the magnitude of threat to the entire region.
