New Delhi, Jan 15 (IANS) Fresh from his visit to Pakistan, Saudi intelligence chief Prince Muqrin bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud Thursday met National Security Adviser M.K. Narayanan and other officials here to discuss the Mumbai terror attacks and the India-Pakistan tensions.Informed source told IANS that Al-Saud, who has seen the dossier of evidence India has provided to Pakistan on Pakistani links to the Mumbai killings, was provided with more details about involvement of Pakistan-based elements.

“Being a close ally of Pakistan, efforts are on to make Saudi Arabia use its influence to press Pakistan to cooperate to get to the perpetrators of Mumbai terror attacks,” said one source.

While in Pakistan, the Saudi intelligence chief met President Asif Ali Zardari, Interior Minister Rehman Malik and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) director general Shuja Pasha.

India says that the Mumbai massacre was the work of Pakistani terrorists and has provided Islamabad with what it says are evidence to back the claim. Pakistan says what India has given it is merely information, not evidence - a stand that has strained relations between the two countries.
