'Pak will take next step after Indian response to 30 questions'

world Updated: Feb 21, 2009 21:09 IST

Pakistan will take the next step in its investigations into the Mumbai terror attacks after getting India's response to a set of questions seeking more information on the incident, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Saturday.

Qureshi said Pakistan had given India a set of 30 questions along with its response to the Indian dossier on the Mumbai attacks.

"We are waiting for their response and we will take our next step in light of the information provided by India," he told reporters on the sidelines of a function in Islamabad.

Pakistan is proceeding cautiously on the issue of the Mumbai attacks and had offered its complete support to India in probing the incident, he said.

"We are treating the issue seriously and our effort is to get to the bottom of the matter," he said.

He evaded a direct reply to a question on why Pakistan had not yet sought custody of Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist captured by India for the attacks. Islamabad recently acknowledged Kasab as a Pakistani national.

Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said the government is considering the possibility of sending an investigation team to India as part of its probe into the Mumbai attacks.
