Pakistan FM: No information that Bin Laden is in Pakistan

As the world waits for President Obama's announcement on troop levels in Afghanistan, no country awaits his decision more keenly than Pakistan.

Pakistan's army claims to have killed more than 600 Islamic fighters during the past six weeks, but Pakistan has still been criticised for not doing more to combat al-Qaeda.

At the recent Commonwealth meeting in Trinidad, Zeinab Badawi talked to Pakistan's Foreign Minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi, about Pakistan's contribution to regional stability.

He said that there is no way of knowing where Osama Bin Laden is hiding and that at the moment no one has any solid information as to his whereabouts.

The full interview with Shah Mahmood Qureshi will be broadcast on HARDtalk on Tuesday 1st December 2009.
