Islamabad, Dec 17 (ANI): The United States has asked Pakistan to continue providing all necessary cooperation to investigate the Mumbai terror attacks.

State Department spokesman Robert Wood said: Pakistan should continue to provide all the co-operation necessary with regards to Mumbai investigation.

Wood said The United Sates wanted continued dialogue between India and Pakistan to promote regional stability and urged the nuclear-armed neighbours to ease tensions following the Mumbai attacks through co-operative efforts.

That is a decision for the two governments to deal with. But obviously, we would promote continued dialogue between India and Pakistan. I think that is important for regional stability, the Daily Times quoted Wood, as saying.

These are two important players in the region. Dialogue is important. We want to see tensions reduced, he added when asked about reports that India had put on hold the bilateral peace dialogue. (ANI)
