Pak not responsible for US, NATO forces' security in Afghanistan: Gilani

Islamabad , Sun, 25 Sep 2011 ANI

Islamabad, Sept 25 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that Pakistan cannot be held responsible for the security of the US, NATO, and ISAF forces in Afghanistan.


"Several countries have maintained direct contacts with the Haqqanis. Singling out Pakistan is not fair. Pakistan cannot be held responsible for the security of US NATO/ISAF forces in Afghanistan. While there have been terrorist attacks in Kabul and Wardak, there have also been numerous attacks on Pakistan launched from sanctuaries and safe havens in Nooristan and Kunar in Afghanistan," The Nation quoted Gilani, as saying.


"It is as much the responsibility of the Afghan National Army, NATO and ISAF not to allow such cross-border militancy. Joint operations and coordination are essential. Let's be objective and not get carried away by emotions," it added.


He has again reminded the US should have a deeper engagement with Pakistan to deal with the ongoing war on terror, but added that it should be on the basis of mutual respect.


US' top military officer Admiral Mullen had yesterday said that Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency was actively supporting the network linked to al Qaeda, and blamed it for an assault on the US embassy in Kabul last week.


Later, Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar had warned that the US will lose its crucial ally if it continues its blame game. (ANI)
