Posted on 13 September 2008

Lots of discussions about going into Pakistan to kill Al Qaeda leaders is apparently getting Pakistan’s attention: Pak army to retaliate if US conducts raids.

The Pakistan Army has been ordered to retaliate against any action by foreign troops inside the country, army spokesman Major General Athar Abbas said on Friday.

General Abbas’ statement came as top brass of the Pakistan Army in their meeting on second day fully endorsed their chief’s warning that no country would be allowed to violate Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

A press release issued after the 111th Corps Commanders Conference quoted General Ashfaq Kayani as saying that “all elements of the National Power under the new democratic leadership will safeguard the territorial integrity of Pakistan with full support and backing of the people of Pakistan.”
