India will know probe findings soon: Qureshi
Afzal Khan writes from Islamabad

Pakistan Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said the initial findings of the (Pakistani) probe into the 26/11 Mumbai attack on the basis of the Indian dossier would soon be conveyed to New Delhi through diplomatic channels. The probe report, he claimed, would prove Pakistan's sincerity in its efforts to defeat the common enemy - terrorism.

Also, Qureshi dismissed "as premature and given in haste" the statement by Wajid Shamsul Hasan, Pakistan's high commissioner in London. Hasan had, in an interview with NDTV, claimed that the Mumbai attacks did not originate in Pakistan. Wajid, said he, was not authorised to make such comment unless the Pakistani version was finalised.

Qureshi said Pakistan wanted resumption of composite dialogue with India as early as possible. He, however, acknowledged that "realistically speaking" India and the rest of the countries were looking at Pakistan to see what action it took.

"We are moving forward in the right direction and will take India and the other countries into confidence by sharing the findings of the initial probe," Qureshi said. He said bilateral cooperation on the issue was the key to ensure successful prosecution of the culprits in Mumbai attack.
