Islamabad, Jan.2 (ANI): Pakistan has denied reports suggesting that a Lashkar-e-Tayyaba operative had confessed to his involvement in the Mumbai attacks.
We have no such information. We dont accept that report, the Daily Times quoted Pakistan spokesman Shahidullah Baig, as saying.
Attacking India for not providing key evidence about the Mumbai attacks, Pakistan Foreign Office spokesman Muhammad Sadiq said: We are awaiting evidence from India to enable our own investigations to make progress. We are currently engaged in the process of our own investigation.”
Rejecting Indias claim that Pakistan is offering a safe haven to several terrorist organisations, Sadiq said: Terrorism is a global issue, and India and other countries, should cooperate with Pakistan, rather than making allegations.

Sadiq added that Pakistans Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency is commited to the war on terror. He also rejected claims suggesting that the ISI is laying a helping hand to terror activities against other countries. (ANI)
