The official, however, said Pakistan was still willing to cooperate with India if it had any additional information regarding the Pulwama attack.
The preliminary findings were shared with India through its High Commissioner in Islamabad on Wednesday by Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua. “The Government of Pakistan has shared preliminary findings with the Government of India after examining the Indian report on Pulwama incident,” said a statement issued by the foreign office.
It said the Indian High Commissioner in Islamabad was called to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by the Foreign Secretary and the findings on the Pulwama incident were shared with him.
The statement noted that Pakistan had acted with “a high sense of responsibility” and extended full cooperation. “We do so in the interest of regional peace and security. We have sought further information/evidence from India to take the process forward,” it said.
