Islamabad - The chief of Pakistan's spy agency said he had contacted Israeli officials to head off potential attacks on Israeli targets in India, according to an October 2009 US diplomatic cable published by WikiLeaks on Wednesday.

Lieutenant General Ahmad Shuja Pasha, head of Pakistan's inter-services intelligence agency, told former US ambassador Anne Patterson that he wanted Washington to know he had been to Oman and Iran "to follow up on reports which he received in Washington about a terrorist attack on India.

"Pasha asked Patterson to convey to Washington that he had followed up on threats that an attack would be launched against India between September and November. He had been in direct touch with the Israelis on possible threats against Israeli targets in India," the October 7 2009 cable reported.

Pakistan, a conservative Muslim country, has no diplomatic relations with Israel.
