Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf on Saturday said terror suspect Osama bin Laden was not in Pakistan.

Addressing a joint press conference with visiting head of the European Union and Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhosftadt, Musharraf said bin Laden 'would be unable to enter the country' because of strict vigilance on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, Online news agency reported.

Musharraf also said that during his deliberations with the EU delegation various matters, including bilateral ties, current developments in Afghanistan and India-Pakistan ties, especially Kashmir, were discussed.
