Karachi, Jun 9: Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Wednesday, June 8 rejected India's claims that Pakistan was not doing enough to punish those responsible for the Mumbai terror attacks and said Islamabad is willing to cooperate and listen to New Delhi's grievances.

"We want friendly relations with India and we are willing to cooperate and listen to all their grievances. At the same time we are doing our best to ensure the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks are punished," Malik told reporters on Wednesday night at the Karachi airport.

Home Minister P Chidambaram said confidence cannot be restored between India and Pakistan till Islamabad takes action against the "real culprits" responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Talking to a delegation of Pakistani journalists in New Delhi, Chidambaram said that all evidences regarding Mumbai attacks had been handed over to Pakistan.

New Delhi recently handed over to Islamabad a list of five individuals linked to the Mumbai incident, including an army officer, but no action had been taken by Pakistani authorities so far, he said.

Malik confirmed that India had handed over a fresh dossier but said he have not looked at it yet.

"I can assure the Indian government and people we are sincere in our efforts to fight terrorism and we will ensure those behind the Mumbai attacks don't go unpunished," Malik said.

"We had proposed a joint judicial commission to be set up to India for the Mumbai attack case but they have not responded as yet," he said.
