INTRO: Pakistan is promising the United States full cooperation in the

fight against terror. From Islamabad, Ayaz Gul reports.

TEXT: Military leader General Pervez Musharraf uses a statement to say he

assured President Bush and his government of Pakistan's "unstinted"

cooperation. He says the carnage in New York and Washington has raised

anti-terrorism struggle to a new level. Rashid Qureshi is the Pakistani Government's main spokesman.

//QURESHI ACTUALITY//

Pakistan has been extending cooperation to international efforts to

combat terrorism in the past and will continue to do so. All countries must

join hands in this common cause.

//END ACTUALITY//

Pakistan is the main supporter of the Taleban in Afghanistan, where the

prime suspect of the terrorist strikes, Osama bin Laden, lives as a

"guest" of the ruling Islamic movement.

Meanwhile, the U-S ambassador to Pakistan has met General Musharraf, on

instructions from Washington, which has been seeking fullest cooperation

in gathering information about the attacks on U-S buildings. Officials have

refused to comment on what was discussed in the meeting. (SIGNED)
