KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said Tuesday Pakistan had suffered more than any other from terrorism and that it would fight the scourge with an "iron fist".

"The world is facing today the menace of extremism and terrorism which has affected our socioeconomic development," he said in a speech to a summit of the D8 group of developing countries.

"Pakistan has suffered the most due to this curse," he said, pointing to the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto last year which was just one of many acts of violence to hit the country.

"However, such cowardly acts will never dampen our firm resolve to fight terrorism and extremism with iron fist," he said.

Gilani also said Pakistan was committed to a peaceful resolution of the ongoing conflict with India over held Kashmir.

"We have made positive progress in recent years in our dialogue with India," he said.

"We are seeking a peaceful resolution for all our outstanding issues including the core issue of Jammu and Kashmir in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people."
