Pakistan Premier Yousuf Raza Gilani has assured Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa that Islamabad would share information on the March 3 terror attack on the island nation’s cricketers in Lahore that had left six players injured.
Mr. Gilani told Mr. Rajapaksa that Pakistan will share information with regard to what happened to the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore once the investigations are completed, the state-run ‘Daily News’ reported on Wednesday.
The issue came up for discussion on Tuesday in Tripoli where Mr. Rajapaksa, who is on a visit to Libya to participate at the 40th anniversary celebrations of the Al-Fateh Revolution, met Premier Gilani on the sidelines of the event.
The Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik and the investigating officials will visit Sri Lanka in this connection, the newspaper said.
Meanwhile, an official statement here said Prime Minister Gilani stressed the need for effective dialogue between the two nations to strengthen ties and thereby pave the way to expand trade, economic and social cooperation.
“While highly commending the efforts taken by the Sri Lankan government to eliminate terrorism, Prime Minister Gilani said that the manner in which the resettlement process is carried out in Sri Lanka is remarkable and provides a powerful example to all nations facing similar situations,” it said.
