Referring to the recent attempts on his life, Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf on Tuesday said, "I have nine lives and I have not consumed all."
He, however, admitted that extremists could again target him particularly in the wake of the latest developments on the Indo-Pak front.
He said India and Pakistan must deal firmly with extremists on either side. "We have to take to task all the extremists," he said adding Pakistan had resolved to rid its territory of extremists.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee returned to Delhi on Tuesday evening after a three-day visit to Pakistan to attend the SAARC Summit.
Vajpayee, who landed in the technical area of the Indira Gandhi International Airport, drove straight to his Race Course Road residence without a ceremonial welcome. He was accompanied by External Affairs Minister Yashwant Sinha and National Security Adviser Brajesh Mishra.
