Washington, Dec 8: The United States has said that a FBI team will visit Pakistan to follow up on leads about American terror suspect David Coleman Headley's activities there.
Speaking to reporters, State Department Spokesman Ian Kelly said, "The US team which briefed Indian investigators on the case in New Delhi will travel directly to Islamabad to brief appropriate Pakistani security officials."
"We're also working with Pakistani officials to follow up on leads regarding Headley's activities in Pakistan," he said.
When asked if the US will allow the Indian investigating agencies to question Headley and Rana, Kelly said, "I think that' s the kind of detail that I really have to refer you to the Department of Justice on."
When asked if the US was satisfied with the cooperation it was getting from Pakistani authorities in the Headley case, he said, "...We have a very broad and deep relationship with Pakistan on a number of issues, including law enforcement and security issues."
Kelly further said, "FBI visit reflects the President's commitment to Indian Prime Minister (Manmohan) Singh during his recent visit to cooperate closely on the case."
