Condemning the blasts in Malegaon, Pakistan has expressed hope that the Indian government would bring the culprits to book.
Pakistan condemns terrorism and extremism in all forms, Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz said.
He also expressed hope that the government would punish the guilty.
Asserting that Pakistan is for peace in the region, Aziz said that with India it requires the resolution of all issues, including the Kashmir problem.
He hoped the upcoming meeting between President Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in Havana on the sidelines of the NAM summit will help take the peace process forward.
About the recent peace deal between the government of Pakistan and pro-Taliban terrorists to end the five years of unrest in the tribal area bordering Afghanistan, he said it was a "positive move" aimed at improving the situation and restoring normal activities in the area.
He also said that the agreement provided guarantees to check terrorist activities and ensures that there is no cross-border movement in the area.
On situation in Balochistan following the killing of tribal leader Nawab Akbar Bugti, he said the government's strategy focuses on peace and development in the province.
