Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi was on Tuesday quoted as having linked the Samjhauta train blasts near Panipat in 2007 to the Mumbai terror attacks last November.

According to the Dawn newspaper, Qureshi had told reporters in Multan that the Samjhauta Express incident and the Mumbai attacks were inter-connected and the probe could continue only if India responds to questions raised by Pakistan.

Qureshi had on Monday sought India's cooperation in ensuring the prosecution and conviction of the Pakistani suspects arrested for their involvement in the Mumbai terrorist attacks.

"If India wants the prosecution and conviction of persons responsible (for the Mumbai attacks), then they must answer our questions in a serious manner," he said, referring to queries sent by Pakistan to India last week, seeking more information about the November 26 terror attack.
