The US has made it clear to Pakistani leaders that all terrorist safe havens must end, President Barack Obama said on Monday. Addressing members of Indian parliament, he also said -- to thunderous applause -- that the terrorists behind the Mumbai terrorist attack of 2008 should be brought to justice. "We will continue to insist to Pakistan's leaders that terrorist safe havens within their borders are unacceptable, and that the terrorists behind the Mumbai attacks be brought to justice," Obama said in his address to Indian MPs in the Central Hall of Parliament complex. "The Pakistani government increasingly recognises that these networks are not just a threat outside of Pakistan - they are a threat to the Pakistani people, who have suffered greatly at the hands of violent extremists," he noted. He said the world needed to recognise the importance of a stable and prosperous Afghanistan and Pakistan. Obama said the Pakistani government increasingly recognised that extremists were a threat to the Pakistani people as well. "They have suffered greatly at the hands of violent extremists Obama also said the US would not abandon the Afghan people to violent extremists. 'Our strategy to disrupt and dismantle and defeat the al-Qaeda and its affiliates has to succeed on both sides of the border,' he said. He said his administration was working with the Pakistani establishment to address the threat of terrorist networks in the border region. Lauding India's growing role in global bodies, US President Barack Obama said the US welcomed India as it prepared for a permanent seat in the UN Security Council. "We welcome India as it prepares to take a seat at the United Nations Security Council," said Obama. "And as two global leaders, the United States and India can partner for global security - especially as India serves on the Security Council over the next two years," "Indeed, the just and sustainable international order that America seeks includes a United Nations that is efficient, effective, credible and legitimate," he said. "That is why I can say today-in the years ahead, I look forward to a reformed UN Security Council that includes India as a permanent member," he said to loud applause from over 780 MPs. Obama stressed that the US valued India's role in global economic decision-making bodies like the G20 and in ongoing consultation over global issues like climate change.
