London, Mar 27 (ANI): Pakistan has rejected White House offer of key concessions to Pakistan's spy chief that included giving advance notice about drone attacks and limits on the types of targets.
The U.S. offer is a bid to keep Pakistan from blocking arguably one of America's most potent tools against Al-Qaeda, Fox News reports.
U.S. and Pakistani officials say CIA Director General (retired) David Petraeus made the offer in January in London to Pakistan's then-spy chief, Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha. t. Gen. Pasha said then what Pakistani officials and its parliament have repeated in recent days: that Pakistan will no longer brook independent U.S. action on its territory by CIA drones, two Pakistani officials said.
Reports suggest that Lt. Gen. Pasha went further, saying Pakistan's intelligence service would no longer carry out joint raids with U.S. counterterrorist teams inside its country, as it had in the past. Instead, Pakistan would demand that the U.S. hand over the intelligence, so its forces could pursue targets on their own in urban areas, or send the Pakistani army or jets to attack the targets in the tribal areas.
