Islamabad: Pakistan's president has said he will take "strong action" against elements in his country that were involved in the terrorist attacks in Mumbai.

Asif Ali Zardari's office said he made the pledge during talks with U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in Islamabad on Thursday.

A presidential statement said Zardari also repeated a promise to help investigate the attacks and said Pakistan was determined to ensure its territory is not used for any act of terrorism.

US officials are satisfied with Zardari’s statement.
