New York, Jan 16 (ANI): Former president Pervez Musharraf has said that Pakistan is a victim of terrorism so the world should support it in this hour of crises.

Expressing these views at a press conference in Michigan, Musharraf urged the international community to play a constructive role for the elimination of terrorism and extremism.

He urged the US to support Pakistan through economic aid expansion.

Replying to a question, the Daily Times quoted Musharraf as saying that Pakistan was trying its best to bring perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks to justice.

Former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto had also become a victim of terrorism, he said.

The government is striving to put Pakistan on the road to progress, but they should be given time as terrorism and extremism could not be ended within seconds.

Asked about the presence of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan, he said, We do not know where he is now. (ANI)
