ISLAMABAD (Agencies) Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit Sunday urged the world powers especially United Kingdom to avoid media statements and share credible intelligence information (if any) about the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden with Pakistan to enable it to act promptly. Commenting on the statement of UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who asked Pakistan to 'do more for capturing Osama and eliminating al-Qaeda, the Foreign Office spokesman told a private TV channel that nobody should doubt Pakistans sincere efforts for eliminating terrorism. No one knows about the whereabouts of Osama, UK should extend cooperation with Pakistan in eliminating terrorism. During the last seven to eight years, Pakistan has either captured or killed more than 700 al-Qaeda operatives, he added. On Sunday, British Prime Minister called on Pakistan to take tougher action against al-Qaeda and step up its efforts to track down the groups leader Osama bin Laden. Brown said the efforts of British and coalition forces in Afghanistan to tackle the Taliban insurgency needed to be matched by more effective action by the Pakistan government and forces on their side of the border. Brown called President (Asif Ali) Zardari yesterday, he expressed support for what Pakistani forces are doing against the Pakistani Taliban but said he wanted to see tougher action against the leadership of al Qaeda, a British official said. In television interviews on Sunday, Brown said that while progress had been made by Pakistani forces in South Waziristan, a bastion of the Pakistani Taliban, there were still big issues to deal with in the country. People are going to ask why, eight years after 2001, Osama bin Laden has never been near to being caught ... and what can the Pakistan authorities do that is far more effective, he told Sky news. Al Qaeda has a base in Pakistan, that base is still there, they are able to recruit from abroad, he said. The Pakistan authorities must convince us that they are taking all the action that is necessary to deal with that threat. He also questioned why there had been no evidence to lead to the capture of bin Laden and his second in command Ayman al-Zawahri, despite people in Pakistan knowing where they are.
