Pakistan is considering the possibility of sending an investigation team to India as part of its probe into the Mumbai attacks, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said on Wednesday.
Gilani, who was in Lahore on an official visit, told reporters that the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had sought permission for its team to visit India.
The government is seriously considering sending the FIA team to India, he was quoted as saying by TV channels.
He also said India is yet to reply to questions submitted by Pakistan along with its response to the Indian dossier on the Mumbai attacks.
Pakistan had given India a set of 30 questions seeking more information on the November 26 Mumbai attacks along with its response, which was handed over on February 12.
The FIA conducted a probe into the attacks after India gave its dossier to Pakistan on January 5.
Pakistan has said it has filed formal charges against nine suspects linked to the Mumbai attacks, including Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist captured alive during the attacks by Indian authorities.
It has said six of the suspects are in the custody of authorities while two others are still at large though they have been identified.
Pakistan has also acknowledged that part of the conspiracy behind the attacks was hatched on Pakistani soil.
