ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani on Tuesday categorically stated that neither Mullah Omar nor Osama bin Laden are in Pakistan and if any one has any credible and verifiable information it should be shared.
Talking to media at the Prime Minister House, Gilani said that bin Laden was not included in the agenda of the meeting with US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton.
He said that if the United States has any evidence regarding bin Laden's presence in Pakistan, then it should share it with Pakistan.
Just a day earlier, Clinton, in a television interview, had said that she believed bin Laden was still in Pakistan. “I believe (bin Laden) is here in Pakistan and it would be very helpful if we could take them (Al Qaeda leaders),” Clinton said.
The prime minister also pointed out that Pakistan has not signed any transit trade agreement with Afghanistan but talks are underway between the two countries for this purpose.
Gilani vowed once again that Pakistan is serious in taking forward its dialogue process with India. He added that India needs to show more seriousness in its willingness to resume the dialogue.
