Pak insists on proof in Mumbai attacks probe

Pakistan today insisted on proof against the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attacks saying "mere statements are not enough" after India said it was yet to see any "tangible progress" by Islamabad on the matter.

Asked to comment on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's remarks yesterday in Parliament that Pakistan was not doing enough against terrorism and the LoC killings, Foreign Office spokesman Moazzam Khan said, "Pakistan condemns terrorism and extremism in all its forms and manifestations."

Terrorism is a common threat and requires a common strategy and cooperation among all countries in the region, he added.

In response to another query about the 2008 Mumbai attacks that were carried out by the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba‚ the spokesman said Islamabad had repeatedly told Delhi to provide proof that could stand scrutiny in a court of law as "mere statements are not enough".

Pakistan wants the resolution of all issues with India, including recent clashes on the Line of Control, through dialogue, Khan said.

Islamabad has gone to the extent of offering an investigation under mechanisms available in the UN system, he remarked.

A ceasefire put in place along the LoC in late 2003 was marred by a string of clashes this year.

The two sides traded angry charges over the incidents before the Directors General of Military Operations agreed on steps to de-escalate the situation.

Asked about the grant of Most Favoured Nation-status to India‚ Khan said the Pakistan government is committed to its decision in this regard but the two countries have to first complete required processes.
