Chicago, Mar 24: The lawyer of the Pakistani-American terrorist David Coleman Headley has stated that his client would cooperate with India in the investigations into the Mumbai terror attacks as required under the terms of his plea agreement if the US government allows.

"Headley will cooperate to the extent it is required to by the terms of his plea agreement but as for the specifics. I think really our government and our US attorney's office have to be the ones to determine the actual form (of access)," the lawyer, John Theis told a news agency.

The terms of plea agreement, which was settled on Thursday, Mar 18 between the terrorist and the US prosecutors, requires Headley to cooperate with international authorities.

"He is in US custody and so interviewing him does implicate the security issues and things like that," Theis said.

To the question if the Indian investigative team expected to land in US in Apr 2010 would surely get access the Headley, the lawyer said that he was not the one who could answer that question.

"I'm not the one to ask that. You will have to ask our government, our US attorney's office. They are the ones who are going to determine how this actually happens," he said.
