US State Department Spokesperson Ned Price at his daily news conference on Monday said the memories of the brutal attack by terrorists in Mumbai in 2008 are still vivid both in India and the United States.
Biden administration said the terrorist attacks that took place in 2008 in Mumbai, of course, the memories of that are still vivid.
"They're still vivid here (and) in India,” Price told reporters at his daily news conference.
“They are still vivid in the United States as well. We can all remember the horrific imagery of that day, the assault on the hotel, the bloodshed that resulted, and it's why we've continued to insist on accountability for the perpetrators of this, not only the individual operatives who took so many innocent lives that day, but the terrorist groups that were behind this, that helped to orchestrate it as well,” Price said in response to a question.
