President Asif Ali Zardari has said Pakistan is determined to uncover the "full facts" behind the Mumbai attacks and needs India's cooperation for the trial of any suspects linked to the terror strikes.

Zardari, during a meeting with visiting British Foreign Secretary David Miliband at the presidency in Islamabad late on Friday night, said an elite Pakistani counter-terror team is conducting a probe into the Mumbai incident.

There was no official word on the meeting though TV channels quoted sources as saying that Zardari told Miliband that Pakistan is determined to uncover the full facts about the Mumbai attacks.

India's cooperation is needed for the proper trial of any suspects and that is why Pakistan wanted a joint probe to be conducted by the two countries, Zardari reportedly said.

The President echoed comments made on Friday by Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, who said full cooperation by India is necessary to ensure proper trial of any suspects. Gilani also said Pakistan is serious about prosecuting suspects in the Mumbai attacks in accordance with its own laws in a transparent trial.
