"To me, time, space and options are becoming limited by the day for Osama and all those linked to him," he told presspersons here. His comments assume importance as the United States Ambassador to Pakistan, Nancy Powell, had said last week that the possibility of Osama hiding in Pakistan could not be ruled out. There have been intense speculations in the Western and a section of the Pakistani media about stepped up operations by Pakistan and the U.S.-led coalition forces in the hunt for Osama.
Mr. Faisal said the recent arrests of key Al-Qaeda activists provided vital leads in dismantling the terrorist network. "As a result, slowly and gradually the noose is tightening around Osama and his aides."
Pressed about the whereabouts of Osama, he said, "nobody can say in absolute terms about the whereabouts of Osama and his close aides. Those who say he is in Pakistan, should come out with a solid proof for that and we will take action".
Mr. Fayat said the fight against terrorism would continue for years. "It is not a matter of one month or one year, it will continue. There will be no let-up in the anti-terror campaign".
