LONDON - British Prime Minster David Cameron said on Tuesday that Britain would continue working with Pakistan to combat militancy despite questions over who knew that al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was hiding in the country.

"The right choice is to engage with Pakistan and to deal with the extremists rather than just throw up our hands in despair and walk away which would be a disastrous choice," he told BBC radio.

Asked if the death of bin Laden would allow Britain to speed up the withdrawal of its troops from Afghanistan, Cameron said:

"It is clearly a helpful development, I don't think it will necessarily change any timetables , but we should use it as an opportunity to say to the Taliban, now is the moment to separate yourself from al-Qaida, to give up violence, to accept the basic tenets of the Afghan constitution."
