Pakistan on Wednesday said the findings of its probe into the Mumbai terror attacks will be made public "within days" after all possible angles are thoroughly investigated.
"Within days, the Foreign Ministry will completely declare (the findings of Pakistan's probe into the Mumbai incident)," Minister of State for Interior Tasnim Ahmad Qureshi told reporters on the sidelines of a function in Islamabad without giving details.
He said all intelligence agencies, including the ISI, are assisting the government in probing the Mumbai attacks.
The government will "not act in haste like India" and point fingers at anyone, Qureshi said.
Authorities are conducting a thorough investigation and will make the results public once the probe is completed, he said.
The government is taking its time to probe the matter from all possible angles, the minister said.
It is widely expected that the Foreign Ministry will announce the findings of Pakistan's probe into India's dossier and other aspects of the Mumbai incident later this week. There has been no official word on the findings of the probe conducted by a three-member team of officials from the Federal Investigation Agency, which recently submitted its preliminary report to the Interior Ministry.
Sources told PTI that this report had been vetted by ISI before being passed on to Foreign and Law ministries.
Pakistan's High Commissioner to India Shahid Malik arrived in Islamabad on Tuesday for consultations on finalising the country's response to the Indian dossier.
Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has made it clear that the action will be taken under Pakistani laws against any persons found to be linked to the Mumbai attacks and they will not be handed over to India.
