US Ambassador to India Timothy J Roemer visited Pune's German Bakery on Wednesday to pay tribute to the victims of the blast.
"I am humbled to be standing in front of the German Bakery, the site of the terrible terrorist attack in February 2010. The US is proud to be a strong and strategic partner of India, to fight terrorism where ever it occurs. India is an indispensable partner of the United States and we are honoured to be partners and friends," he said.
Today, message from Pune is that faith and resilience prevails, he said.
Offering US help to India in combating terrorism, Roemer said, "Well I don't understand the argument about the last straw. Again I served on the 9/11 commission and for you who have read the report back five years ago... we said in the 9/11 report that Pakistan was the epicenter of terrorism. And that they needed to address this threat internally and more actively. We are encouraging them we are pushing them we are cajoling them to do more."
Speaking about David Headley, Roemer said, "Access to David Headley will be delivered, but some questions will have to resolved by India."
