British PM wants Pakistan to act on terrorism

On an impromptu visit to India and Pakistan, the British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said on Sunday that the brutal murder of around 200 people in Mumbai by the Lashkar-e-Tayyiba called for action, not words from Pakistan,

Brown was categorical that Pakistan must make sure that terrorists are denied any safe haven within its territory.

In New Delhi, the British Prime Minister discussed several measures to combat terror over a breakfast meeting with the Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, on Sunday morning. He pledged full cooperation with India. He proposed counter-terrorism cooperation at the highest level with India. It would include improving airport security and combating radicalisation.

Brown said he had asked India and Pakistan to allow the British police to question suspects arrested in both countries in connection with the Mumbai attacks.
