Islamabad, Dec 17: 'We are not the enemies of India' assured Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari to an interview to a French daily. He was of the opinion that Indians and Pakistanis are made of same mud.
Zardari said "the present Mumbai tension created fear. Of course, some Pakistanis cannot help but remember that India has 4800 tanks." "The only border crossed by these tanks is ours. For reasons of relief, they cannot enter Bhutan, or Nepal, or China. We call the leadership of the region to precisely overcome this fear," he said.
Zardari also said "I put myself in the land corpse of my wife. My heart cries tears of blood. I ask you to turn this pain into strength. We are a nation courageous and determined. The death has not taken on us. Pakistan is our country and save us. And I hope that Europe will help us."
Pakistan is bent upon to arrest and punish anyone involved in the horrible massacre of Mumbai. But we put the world on guard against hasty judgments and inflammatory statements, Zardari said.
"India is a nation that has reached maturity. It is a stable democracy. Pakistanis appreciate what India has contributed to the cause of democracy in this region. But popular anger fueled by the terrorist attacks in Bombay can be a bad advisor," Zardari added.
"India, Pakistan and the rest of the world must work together to eradicate these terrorists who have spread death in Bombay, which in the past have attacked New York, London and Madrid, which destroyed the Marriott Hotel Islamabad last September," Zardari told.
