Let us fight terror together: Pak to India
December 29, 2008 21:39 IST
Pakistan today asked India to "review its stance" and cooperate with it to meet the common threat of terrorism as it cautioned that "any coercion or threat of use of force" would be counter-productive.
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi emphasized Pakistan's position to "resolve all its issues with India peacefully" and referred to the country's "constructive proposals to India for serious, sustained and pragmatic cooperation to deal with the region-wide problem of terrorism".
Qureshi said he hoped that India would "review its stance and cooperate with Pakistan to meet the common threat of terrorism", said a statement issued by the Foreign Office.
"Any coercion or threat of use of force will be counter-productive," Qureshi said.
Pakistan said India had "failed" to respond to its offers to defuse tensions in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks [Images].
Pakistan had made specific proposals to India, including one for a joint investigation of the Mumbai incident, Qureshi said.
"Unfortunately, India had failed to respond to Pakistan's positive and constructive offers," Qureshi was quoted as saying.
