Pakistan intelligence chief agrees to visit India

NEW DELHI, Nov 28 (Reuters) - The head of Pakistan’s military intelligence service, the ISI, has agreed to come to India to share information after the attacks in Mumbai by Islamist militants, an Indian government spokesman said.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had requested the visit of Lieutenant-General Ahmed Shujaa Pasha when Pakistani leaders telephoned him in the wake of the attack, his spokesman said.

“We confirm the news,” he said of television reports, declining to be named.

Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardai, Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, and Afghan President Hamid Karzai all telephoned Singh after the attacks in Mumbai, he added. (Reporting by Bappa Majumdar and Surojit Gupta; Writing by Simon Denyer, Editing by Mark Williams)
