ISLAMABAD - The British Prime Minister Gordon Brown Monday offered Pakistan to help defuse the tension with India, which escalated after last week's Mumbai carnage. In a telephonic conversation with President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Brown extended services of his government to help reduce tension between India and Pakistan as a result of the recent developments. US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is also visiting the region and might arrive in India on Wednesday to talk to the Indian leadership. "She is also expected to visit Pakistan on Thursday," according to official sources. Gilani and Brown discussed the regional situation that worsened following the attacks in Mumbai by militants, resulting into the killings of around 200 people and injuring hundreds. The two leaders discussed the prevailing situation in the region and bilateral ties. The British PM contact is also the part of international efforts to avoid any war-like situation between the two nuclear states. The countries, especially the USA and UK, are using their good offices to end the situation and engage both countries into a constructive dialogue.
