Washington, Jan 3:The Bush Administration has hailed Pakistan's decision to associate the Scotland Yard in the inquiry into the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, saying the British agency has expertise in the area of investigations of this sort.

''What's most important is that they proceed quickly and in a transparent and comprehensive way, so that the people of Pakistan can get the answers that they deserve, and that as they move forward towards the elections,'' White House Spokesperson Dana Perino said here yesterday. The elections which were scheduled for January 8 has now been put off to February 18, When asked why Pakistan has not asked the US for help when the Bush Administration was ready to help with the inquiry, Ms Perino said, ''I'll decline to go into any details about discussions that were underway. What I can say is we certainly support Scotland Yard being involved, and we think that they'll do an excellent job.''
