London, May 2: Pakistan High Commissioner Wajid Shamsul Hasan today said he would not buy the version that Pakistan had been kept in the dark about the US operation that killed Osama bin laden in Abbottabad today.
Speaking to the BBC, he said that he "wouldn't buy the story that Pakistan would have been kept in the dark" about the operation.
"Pakistani authorities and the CIA and the American intelligence network have always been working 24 hours-a-day, cooperating with each other, sorting out things, so there has been total cooperation between them." Hasan hoped that India will not start "a blame game" because Bin Laden was found in Pakistan.
He said: "India has always been looking for a chance to pin down Pakistan on something or the other. We have to cooperate with each other and tackle this problem as a regional problem and not as Pakistan-specific."
The high commissioner said the fact that President Obama did not thank the Pakistani government in connection with the killing of Bin Laden was perhaps "a slip of mind" in the middle of the night. PTI
