Washington: The US on Wednesday has reminded Pakistan of its ‘special’ responsibility to bring the perpetrators of 26/11Mumbai terror attacks to justice on a priority basis.

"There's an international responsibility to cooperate for bringing the perpetrators to justice and that Pakistan has a special responsibility to do so transparently and urgently," State Department spokesman Mark Toner said.

He was responding to queries on a statement of Tahawwur Hussain Rana, Pakistani-Canadian accused in the terror attack case, that he provided ‘material support’ to the terrorists at the request of the Pakistan government.

State Department spokesperson, however, refused to make any comment on this statement by Rana, arguing it to be sub-judice.

According to court document, Rana, whose trial is set to begin on May 16, in his defence had said that his ‘alleged illegal acts of providing material support to terrorists -- were done at the behest of the Pakistani government and the ISI.’ His trial is set to begin on May 16.

However, Toner, in response to another question said the US is working with Pakistan on counter-terrorism measure.
