President Asif Ali Zardari has said that Pakistan will not allow its territory to be used against India for any acts of terror and is ready to cooperate with it to punish the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attacks.

"Pakistan is ready to cooperate with India to punish the perpetrators of terror attacks in Mumbai. Pakistan has assured that it would not allow its territory to be used against India for any acts of terror," Zardari told the Financial Times in an interview published on Wednesday.

Zardari's comments came ahead of the meetings of Foreign Ministers and Foreign Secretaries of the two countries on the sidelines of UN General Assembly session in New York.

India has accused Pakistan of not taking action to prosecute the 26/11 perpetrators despite 10 months having passed by.

Zardari also said: "India must also reciprocate and address our concerns which are very genuine. Dialogue is the only way forward. Absence of dialogue leads to tension."
