Answer our 30 questions, Pakistan tells India
February 22, 2009 16:22 IST
Pakistan will proceed with its probe into the Mumbai [Images] attacks after getting India's response to a set of 30 questions seeking more information on the terror strikes, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said.
"We are waiting for their response and we will take our next step in light of the information provided by India," he told reporters yesterday on sidelines of a function.
Pakistan is proceeding cautiously on the issue of the Mumbai attacks and had offered its complete support to India in probing the incident, he said.
"We are treating the issue seriously and effort is to get to the bottom of the matter."
He evaded a direct reply to a question on why Pakistan had not yet sought custody of Ajmal Amir Kasab [Images], the lone terrorist captured by India for the attacks.
Islamabad [Images] recently acknowledged Kasab as a Pakistani national.
Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani [Images] has said the government is considering the possibility of sending an investigation team to India as part of its probe.
Qureshi also said he would not be attending a ministerial meeting of the SAARC in Colombo as its dates clashed with consultations with the US on a review of the American policy for Pakistan and Afghanistan.
