|ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani Monday said Pakistan will act responsibly in the wake of Mumbai attacks and demanded India to provide evidence, before leveling any allegations.
He said he has talked to world leaders to diffuse the situation. “We have talked to all our friends that they use their good offices to diffuse the situation,” he said.
He was hopeful that there will no escalation between the two countries in the aftermath of the Mumbai tragedy.
“I think it will be the other way round. It will not escalate because some responsible people have owned the responsibility of the intelligence failure,” he said in an apparent reference to the resignation of Indian home minister.
Gilani said India should provide some proof about Pakistan’s involvement in the Mumbai attacks.
“We have yet to see evidence,” he added.
He said the Mumbai attacks were “something unusual” and people in India were in a state of anger.
“They were in a state of mind which one can expect at that time. They said in anger something but now the dust has settled down,” he added.
