As world opinion corners Pakistan following the Mumbai attacks, a defensive Islamabad stressed on the two nations resuming composite dialogue to 'improve ties' across the border.

Seeking an end to the blame game between New Delhi and Islamabad, Pakistan's Interior Ministry chief Rehman Malik has asked both the governments to resume the composite dialogue so as to improve ties across the border.

Both India and Pakistan should stop blame game against each other and sit together to resume the composite dialogue, Malik, adviser to Pakistan's prime minister, said.

Blaming 'non state actors' for stoking up tensions between the countries, he said the Pakistan government was committed to prosecute them as per law of the land.

"The law will take its own course and we are fully determined to take them (jihads parties) out as per law of the land," Malik told reporters in London shortly before his departure to Islamabad.

He said the non-state actors and non-state stakeholders are attempting to drive a wedge between Pakistan and India and stoking up tension.

"Both Pakistan and India are victims of terrorism and Pakistan will welcome any evidence against jihadi parties involved in Mumbai attacks as referred by India," Malik was quoted as saying by APP.

Malik also said that the action against Jamaat-ud-Dawah has been taken following the UN Security Council resolution.

Pakistan, being a member of the world body, was bound to honour it, he added.
