Islamabad, Dec.3 (ANI): Just hours after President Barack Obama acknowledged that Al-Qaeda's leadership was present in Pakistan, and that the outlawed outfit is using the country as its base, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said Islamabad has no information regarding Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.

"Pakistan has no information on the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden," Qureshi told the BBC .

Reiterating that Islamabad is committed to root out terror emanating from its soil, Qureshi urged Washington to provide actionable information about Laden and other top Al-Qaeda and Taliban commanders.

"If we knew where they are, we will get the Al Qaeda leadership. If the US has any information in this regard, they should share it with us," The Daily Times quoted Qureshi, as saying.

He said even the United States does not have credible information regarding Laden and added that President Obama's claims regarding Al Qaeda leadership's presence in Pakistan was a mere 'guess'.

"It's a guessing game... everybody is making guesses," Qureshi said. (ANI)
