Give proof, will cooperate, Musharraf to India

Asking India to provide evidence of those it suspects to be behind the Mumbai serial blasts, Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf on Thursday night said his government was prepared to extend "full cooperation" in apprehending the perpetrators.
In a televised address to the nation, the Pakistan President described as "unfortunate" India's decision to postpone the foreign secretary-level talks.
Deferring the peace process and dialogue is clearly "playing into the hands of terrorists. This is exactly what they want -- that peace and normalisation process should be stopped," Musharraf said.
He said the Indian government's stand in the wake of the blasts appeared to be "unfortunate" and "I'm sure Indian government does not want" the peace process to halt.
