Gilani says Paks diplomacy strong enough to ”defeat” Indian plansFebruary 9th, 2009 - 4:29 pm ICT by ANI
Multan, Feb. 9 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that Islamabad enjoys world enough support to defeat Indian plans to isolate Pakistan.
While speaking to the reporters in Qasim Bela, Gilani termed the Indian plans to get Pakistan declared a terrorist state as wishful thinking, and said Pakistans diplomacy and foreign policy would not allow India to succeed, the Daily Times reports.
Commenting on the US envoy Richard Holbrookes upcoming meeting, Gilani said he believed that terrorism was a regional issue and should be tackled at the regional level.
Pakistan will be able to give its opinion after meeting the US envoy for the region, he said.
However, the prime minister refused to reveal anything related to Pakistans reply and probe dossier on the Mumbai terror attacks.
An investigation report will be tabled at a meeting of the Defence Coordination Committee today and Pakistan would give its response after studying it, Gilani said.
Separately, Gilani had told Newsweek that those found guilty in the investigation would be tried under the law of the land. (ANI)
