ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Monday said Pakistan will not allow use of its soil for terrorism against any other country.

In an interview to a French magazine Politique Internationale and a foreign new agency, Prime Minister Gilani said thousands of Pakistani soldiers, civilians, women and children had suffered in the fight against terrorism.

To a question on the killing of al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, Gilani said he did not have minute details of the incident.

Intelligence sharing with the US was involved in the operation, he added.

Gilani said it was an embarrassment for the whole world that Osama could not be captured earlier despite the latest technology.

He said Osama was found in a remote hilly area of Abbottabad and his body was taken to Afghanistan.

He said Pakistan had an intelligence sharing agreement with the United States and other countries.

“We have good relations and multi-dimensional cooperation with the US in fields of health, education, defence and culture.”

Earlier on Monday, President Asif Ali Zardari held emergency talks with Prime Minister Gilani and security chiefs in Islamabad following US confirmation that Osama bin Laden had been killed.
