KARACHI  - Minister for Defence Ch Ahmed Mukhtar has denounced the attack on Pakistani soldiers by NATO forces, terming it quite unsuitable for America as Islamabad was a close ally in Washington's war against terrorism. While talking to reporters here on Thursday, the Defence Minister on his visit to Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) sector in Karachi said that Pakistan played a frontline role in war against terrorism on behalf of America and current air attack on  its forces from NATO forces "does not suit the American claims of joint efforts against terrorism". Replying to a question, the minister vowed that any such attack in future would be retaliated, as the current attack was totally unfair. Mukhtar said that NATO forces did not enter into Pakistani territory for attacking Mohmand Agency checkpost, but it was an airstrike. Talking to reporters in Karachi on Thursday, the Federal Minister said Pakistan has protested to the US and coaliltion forces over the violation of its territory and the loss of security personnel. He said that compensation had also been demanded in this regard. Earlier the Defence Minister visited the CAA headquarters where Director General of CAA Farooq Rahmattullah briefed the minister about the progress of CAA. The DG of CAA informed that during the last fiscal year CAA gained 30 per cent extra revenue of Rs 6.3 billion that was about Rs 4.8 billion rupees in the last year and would raise their revenue up to Rs 30.83 billion till 2012 by raising the strength of passengers from currently 17 million to 33 million per annum.
