British Prime Minister David Cameron Sunday called his Pakistani counterpart Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani on telephone and appreciated the role of Pakistan in the war against terror, the Prime Minister office said.

Acknowledging the political difficulties of the government, the British Prime Minister assured his country's full support to Pakistan, a statement from the PM office said.

The British Prime Minister condemned the killing of over 90 security personnel in a suicide attack in the northwestern district of Charsadda on Friday.

He said that British acknowledges the immense sacrifices of Pakistan and has full realization of the losses on the Pakistani side.

Cameron informed the Prime Minister Gilani that the United States President Barrack Obama is scheduled to visit Britain next week and he would convey Pakistan's point of view to the American President.

Gilani thanked the British Prime Minister for his message of commensuration and informed him that some people have accepted responsibility of the Charsadda incident which was obviously a revenge attack in response to the killing of Osama bin Laden, the statement said.

Gilani told his British counterpart that Pakistan could not be cowed down by such cowardly attacks but his government's main concern is about the sovereignty of the country. He said that "we would never compromise on the honor and dignity of our people."

Gilani reiterated that Pakistan is waging war on terror in its own national interest and this campaign enjoys ownerships of the Pakistani public.

He said that Pakistan would continue its cooperation to eliminate terrorism to ensure global peace yet respect of Pakistan's sovereignty should be observed.

Gilani said that Pakistan is committed to working with the rest of the world to eradicate terrorism and the world should also take care of the national interests of Pakistan.
