June 30, 2010 21:09 IST

Home Minister P Chidambaram virtually ticked off Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi for his statement that it was difficult for his country to rein in elements like Lashkar-e-Tayiba founder Hafiz Saeed.

"Substantive discussions on security related matters and on post 26/11 matters were held between me and the Interior Minister of Pakistan.

"I made a courtesy call on the Foreign Minister of Pakistan. So I would rather wait for the outcomes of my meeting with the Interior Minister of Pakistan on Hafiz Saeed and on other issues that I had raised with him when we both met privately and at delegation level," Chidambaram said.

He was replying to a question on Qureshi's statement on whether it was difficult to rein in elements like LeT founder Hafiz Saeed.
