Pranab Mukherjee, Indian minister of external affairs, speaks to Riz Khan in his first interview with the international media since the Mumbai attacks in November 2008. 

The Indian government says a Pakistan-based group was responsible for the attacks and claims Islamabad has been uncooperative and in a state of denial in its response to the killings. 

In a war of hot words between the two countries Pranab Mukherjee has been one of the most outspoken voices demanding that Pakistan do more to bring those responsible to justice. 

Besides his post as minister of external affairs, he has taken on many of the prime ministers responsibilities, while premiere Manmohan Singh, current prime minister of India, recovers from heart surgery.

This episode of the Riz Khan show aired on Tuesday, January 27, 2009.
