ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Thursday said it had not received a formal request from Interpol or India to hand over 22 suspects in Mumbai terror attacks. Addressing his weekly press briefing here, the Foreign Office Spokesman, Abdul Basit said that no formal request had been received from Interpol or India in connection with the arrest warrants issued for 22 Pakistani nationals including the defunct Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief, Hafiz Saeed by an Indian court for alleged involvement in Mumbai attacks last year. Basit said he would not comment on the Indian legal process, adding Pakistan would follow its own procedure. Pakistan was proceeding in the matter of Mumbai attacks effectively and methodically, he added. To a question, he reiterated Pakistans serious concerns over the repeated drone attacks in tribal areas, saying those were counterproductive, not acceptable and must be stopped. He said, Pakistans position on the issue is very clear, as these drone attacks are counter-productive and have more disadvantages than the advantages. He said there was a need that the United States reviewed the whole policy of drone attacks. We will continue to convey the concern of the people of Pakistan to the US administration, he said. He said the issue of deployment of additional US troops in Afghanistan near Pakistans border would also be raised with the US administration. Answering another query, Basit said that Pakistan seriously believed that composite dialogue was in the interest of both Islamabad and New Delhi. This dialogue process is unavoidable for durable peace and prosperity in the region and for the benefit of both the countries, he said. To a question on water dispute with India, Basit hoped for concrete developments in that regard in October/November 2009. The Water Commissions of India and Pakistan met this month and discussed the issue in detail and the next meeting of the two commissions will be held in October or November this year, he said. Pakistan and India are in touch with each other to settle the water issue through diplomatic channels, he said. When asked about the ongoing political crisis in Iran, Basit said it was the internal matter of Tehran. Earlier, in his opening statement, he said the Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had gone to Italy to attend a meeting on Afghanistan. He said that some bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the conference had also been planned during the foreign ministers visit to Italy.
