Pakistan needs swift move to ease tensions with India: Gilani

Pakistan needs to move swiftly to ease tensions with India, including examining laws in the way of prosecuting gunmen who commit violence in other countries, the Financial Times quoted Pakistan's prime minister as saying.

India and Pakistan have been exchanging heated rhetoric and threats since the Mumbai attacks that killed 179 people in November.

Pakistan denied allegedly involvement charges althoug India cliams were not only carried out by Pakistani nationals but must have had support from Pakistani state agencies.

India "needed to act fast" to ease tensions, and "if somebody is out of the country and he has proved to be guilty, then certainly we have to look into our own laws as well," Gilani was quoted as saying.

Pakistan has said it would not send any attackers who might be arrested to India for prosecution, which New Delhi would prefer.

Gilani repeated past pledges to cooperate fully with India in the investigation of the Mumbai attack, and to share and publicise its findings.
