Islamabad, Jan 2: United States pressure to Pak to extradite India Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) Commander Zakir Al Rahman Lakhvi to India did not pay ears. Pakistan has rejected to handover the perpetrators of the 26/11 attacks to India.
Pakistan has said such a move will be 'harmful'. Citing the
reason Pakistan said that there is no extradition treaty between
the two neighbours and handing over the commander may be
dangerous."There is no extradition treaty between India and
Pakistan. We are keen on rebuilding our internal institutions. So
if we engage in these issues, it will be harmful for
Pakistan," Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told Geo TV.
He was asked whether India and America have made demands for handing over terror suspects, Lashkar-e-Toiba operations commander Zakir Rehman Lakhvi, Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azar and Hafiz Mohammed Saeed.
Reacting to the query Qureshi said Pakistan conducted its own
'independent investigations' about the Mumbai terror attacks and it
will do everything in the interests of India and Pakistan.
When asked about Pakistani govt sources saying that a LeT commander had confessed that all terrorists who attacked Mumbai were Pakistanis, Qureshi said "I think I don't believe that government sources are involved here."
He was of the opinion that terrorism is a common enemy of all, and both Pakistan and India should defeat it together."Terrorism is our common enemy. We have to defeat it together. Pakistan is always ready for constructive cooperation," Qureshi said.
