Delhi, Jan 01, 2008
Describing as unhelpful, Pakistan's statements rejecting the proof
of its link to the Mumbai attackers, Britain on Wednesday asked
Islamabad to "cooperate fully" with India and "follow
through" on actions against the perpetrators.
In view of reports that the attacks were mounted from Pakistani
soil, Britain has asked Pakistan to cooperate with Indian investigation
efforts and for both countries to work together, the Foreign Office
"We urge the Pakistani government to cooperate fully with
the Indian investigation, it is important that action is taken against
those responsible," he said.
"However some statements from Pakistan leadership, denying
existence of proof of Pakistani link to terrorists are not helpful,"
he told agencies.
The spokesman said the UK is "encouraging all concerned to
avoid inflammatory words or actions," besides looking to Pakistan
"to follow through on actions against the Mumbai perpetrators".
One Briton died and several others were caught in the terror attacks
that were closely followed in Britain by people of Indian origin
In places across Britain, events were organised to mourn the victims
of the attacks.
