Islamabad/New Delhi/Washington: 'Ask India to stop terror cells and anti-Pakistani propoganda', said Pakistan's Parliament on Wednesday, Dec 24 to the world community through media and international forums.

Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Malik Amad Khan, presented the resolution and stated that Pakistan wants peace and stability in the region and end of tension with India.

President Asif Ali Zardari, while addressing a students gathering in his home province of Sindh, said: "We will defend the country till the last drop of our blood."

Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, while talking to reporters in Islamabad, said that there were no chances of war between India and Pakistan, adding, "Pakistan is ready to face any adventure".

India will seek Saudi Arabia's support in putting pressure on Pakistan to act against terror outfits during Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal's daylong visit to the Indian capital Friday.

"In his meeting with his Saudi counterpart, Minister for External Affairs Pranab Mukherjee will share information that establishes a clear link between Pakistan-based elements and the Mumbai terror attacks," official sources said.

Mukherjee is also likely to invoke transformed ties between India and Saudi Arabia following King Abdullah's visit to New Delhi in 2006 and seek Riyadh's support in putting pressure on Islamabad to take concrete action against anti-India terror outfits in that country.

With Pakistan stepping up its propaganda offensive against India in the Muslim world, India is likely to draw attention to reports in sections of Saudi media that have been critical of New Delhi but sympathetic to Islamabad.

Meanwhile, former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said he would personally request President Asif Ali Zardari to take 'stern action' if India furnished evidence of the involvement of Pakistani territory in the Mumbai attacks that claimed 174 lives, 26 of them foreigners.
