ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Thursday termed the global concerns and reservations on Swat peace deal as premature saying the agreement backed by majority of Pakistanis would promote peace in the area. Answering a question on international communitys reservations on Swat peace deal at his weekly press briefing, the Foreign Office Spokesman, Abdul Basit said that the peace accord had the backing of the National Assembly and a vast majority of the people and it would help bring about peace and prosperity in the region. He said the promulgation of Nizam-e-Adl regulation in Swat was part of the efforts of the government to promote national reconciliation and three Ds (Dialogue, Development and Deterrence) strategy to combat terrorism and extremism. Answering another query, he said Pakistan had differences with the United States over the drone attacks on its territory. He said, Pakistani leadership has stated in categorical terms that there are gaps in our position and that of the United States over the drone attacks. He also rejected speculations that there was any tacit understanding on the issue of the drone attacks between Islamabad and Washington. Basit said that there were extraneous conditions attached to the draft aid bill for Pakistan introduced in the US House of Representatives. He said, These conditions are not in sync with our mutual desire to forge a long-term partnership, which anchored in mutual respect and mutual interests. Responding to a question about the request of Ajmal Kasab, the only alleged terrorist captured during the Mumbai attacks, for a Pakistani lawyer, Basit said Pakistan had not received anything officially from India regarding Kasabs request for a Pakistani lawyer. He said, We will see when it comes and we would not like to jump the guns. Responding to another question on the elections in India and the party Pakistan would prefer to see in power in the neighbouring country, he said, We are ready to work with any government that comes to power once the elections are over. We are looking forward to working with any government. It is for the people of India to decide whom they vote for, he added. He said that investigations into the Mumbai carnage were continuing with a view to bringing the perpetrators of the gory incident to justice. He said, We acknowledge the comments by the Minister for External Affairs of India confirming that Indian authorities were examining the material received from Pakistan seeking further clarifications and evidence from India on 13 April, and that New Delhi would respond accordingly. He, however said, The government of Pakistan would appreciate if the Indian response to the clarifications sought is provided at the earliest. He also noted the reported remarks by the Indian Home Minister regarding the identical DNA reports of Ajmal Kasab and Abu Ismail furnished by India to Pakistan and described by the Home Minister as a minor clerical error. In this context, he underlined that the investigation into the Mumbai terror attack was a serious matter and it was imperative to avoid such lapses. Responding to questions, the spokesman said Pakistan was looking towards India for a positive response to its proposal for resumption of the composite dialogue process. He regretted that in the wake of Mumbai attacks India has suspended the engagement with Pakistan. He, however, said Pakistan was vigorously pursuing through diplomatic channels the issue of violation of Indus Basin Water Treaty by India. Answering another question, the spokesman said Pakistan was in touch with the United Kingdom over the detention of Pakistani students in Britain. Pakistan is seeking details about the detained students and consular access to them, he said. He said Pakistani government was fully cognizant of its responsibilities towards its nationals. Earlier, in his opening statement, Basit said President Asif Ali Zardari would pay a three-day visit to China from today (Friday) to attend the annual conference of Boao Forum for Asia 2009. President Zardari would be a keynote speaker at the plenary session under the theme 'Asia: Managing Beyond Crisis in the Boao Forum, he added. He said the Forum was being attended by several world leaders with whom President Zardari would hold bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the conference. President Zardari would have a bilateral meeting with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and the two leaders would review the progress on bilateral ties and discuss regional and global developments, the spokesman said.
