English translation of the testimony of Ajmal Amir Kasab

Pakistan said on Thursday that it has received from India the English translation of the testimony of Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist undergoing trial for the Mumbai attacks.

The progress in Islamabad's probe into the 26/11 attacks will be discussed during the upcoming meetings between the Foreign Secretaries and premiers of India and Pakistan, Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit told reporters in Islamabad.

In reply to a question, Basit said Pakistan had received from India the English translation of the testimony of Kasab.

Islamabad had sought the translated version of the testimony after New Delhi provided documents in Marathi and other languages.

"No other information has been received (from India) since then," Basit said.

He said the meetings, to be held on the sidelines of the Non-Aligned Movement summit in Egypt next week, will be "open-ended" as no agenda has been fixed.

"Pakistan's effort will be to see that the composite dialogue is resumed as quickly as possible," he said.

India put the composite dialogue on hold after the Mumbai attacks. It has linked the resumption of the parleys to Pakistan taking action against perpetrators of the terrorist assault that killed nearly 180 people and the dismantling of the terror infrastructure in that country.
