Pakistan on Friday asked India to share any "credible information" it has about possible terrorist attacks on India so that such incidents could be pre-empted.
"Pakistan has once again asked the Indian government to share any credible information that they may have on alleged plans of any future terrorist attacks against India," said a statement by the Foreign Office spokesman, following reports that Israel has warned that Pakistan-based LeT was planning terror strikes across India especially in Jammu and Kashmir.
The government of Pakistan "believes that terrorism is a common threat and requires concerted efforts by the international community to effectively counter and especially pre-empt terrorist attacks," the spokesman said.
Israel's Counter-Terrorism Bureau at the National Security Council (NSC) in a travel warning for Israeli tourists in India rated the threat as "imminent and concrete", putting special emphasis on Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistan's stance is "entirely consistent with the understandings reached between the Prime Ministers of India and Pakistan" in their meeting in Sharm el-Sheikh in July, the spokesman said.
During that meeting, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani had agreed to share credible information to prevent terrorist attacks.
