Adjust font size:

The visiting U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Wednesday the terror attack in Mumbai was "the kind of terror in which al-Qaida participates."

"Whether there is a direct al-Qaida hand or not, this is clearly the kind of terror in which al-Qaida participates," she told a press conference during the one-day visit to India.

"We are not here to jump to the conclusion that who is responsible," the Times Now channel cited Rice as saying.

The top U.S. diplomat also appealed Pakistan to act against terrorism. "It is time that Pakistan must act against the terrorism," she said. "Pakistan needs to act with urgency and resolve and needs to cooperate fully and transparently."

Rice said it is important the terrorist act must be prevented, adding that her presence in India was to express solidarity and stands with India.

She said the United States would like to cooperate with India and share information.

Rice arrived in New Delhi on Wednesday amidst escalating tension between India and Pakistan following the attacks on Mumbai.
