ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan would not tolerate any incursion on its territory by US forces targeting militant groups, the interior minister said on Thursday, calling for Washington to provide the intelligence Islamabad needs to take them out itself. Rehman Malik also rejected US allegations that Pakistans intelligence agency aids or has ties with the Taliban-allied Haqqani Network, a powerful guerrilla group that straddles the mountainous border areas between Afghanistan and Pakistan. The Pakistan nation will not allow the boots on our ground, never. Our government is already cooperating with the US. ... but they also must respect our sovereignty, he told Reuters in an interview, insisting that Islamabad wanted US intelligence, not troops, to root out insurgents inside Pakistan. Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, this week accused Inter Services Intelligence directorate (ISI) of using the Haqqani Network to wage a proxy war on Nato and Afghan troops in Afghanistan. Some US intelligence reporting has alleged that the ISI specifically directed, or urged, the Haqqani Network to carry out last weeks attack on the US embassy and a Nato headquarters in Kabul, according to two US officials and a source familiar with recent US-Pakistan official contacts. If you say that it is ISI involved in that attack, I categorically deny it. We have no such policy to attack or aid attack through Pakistani forces or through any Pakistani assistance, Malik said. During the interview to Reuters, Malik conceded that elements of the Haqqani network, which analysts say can draw on a pool of roughly 10,000 to 15,000 fighters, are partly based in the tribal region of North Waziristan on the Afghan border. However, he said the Americans had so far not provided Pakistan with intelligence that would help it go after them. Our capacity to trace them in that area is limited. Give us the information and we will operate, he said. Lets have information, lets have a proper investigation and if there is a requirement, lets have an operation. We are fighting a common enemy but unfortunately not with a common strategy. Instead of a blame game we have to sit together. We are not part of the terrorism, we are part of the solution. One option for the United States - another cross-border raid, like the mission that killed bin Laden - may be tempting in some quarters. But the risks are high and the backlash from Pakistan would be fierce, almost certainly harming what counter-terrorism cooperation exists. This is going to be very unfortunate if it happens because its going to grow a lot of anti-US feelings, Malik said. Rejecting allegations that Islamabad has ties with the Haqqani Network, Malik said: If they have some kind of proof they must come forward. For us, whether its the Haqqanis or Tehreek-e-Taliban, or LeJ, they are all terrorist outfits and we will leave no stone unturned to go against them. Malik said there was not enough understanding that Pakistan had made huge sacrifices of blood and treasure fighting militancy on its soil since 2001, which the government this week put at 35,000 lives and $68 billion. Pakistan should be given some trust, and this trust deficit should go away, because we are fighting a war, he said. There is not a day that is not 9/11 for my country. INP adds: Pakistan has categorically rejected allegations of proxy war in Afghanistan and insisted that there are safe havens and sanctuaries across Durand Line from where attacks are carried out on border posts and villages on Pakistani side killing innocent people. During her weekly briefing in Islamabad Thursday, Foreign Office spokesperson Tehmina Janjua said the issue has been taken up with the United States urging it that it is the responsibility of the two sides to ensure that such militant attacks are not undertaken. To a question, the Foreign Office spokesperson said communication links between Pakistan and the US are open and discussions at all levels are taking place on all issues. She said all issues are being discussed at political, military and intelligence level talks between the two countries. She said the two countries also had discussions on perceptional issues and agreed to continue deeper engagements to address them. They have also agreed to work towards addressing each others concern. The spokesperson said Pakistan and the US want their relationship based on mutual respect, interest and trust. Replying to a question, she said Pakistan is an energy deficient country and it is in its own interest to ensure early completion of all works relating to Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline. Giving update on the international relief assistance for floods, she said the European Commission has pledged 10 million euros. China is providing 4.7 million dollars worth of relief goods which would be arriving by flights from today. The JICA is providing relief goods worth 450,000 dollars while the US is sending food assistance, shelter kits and non-food items and medical assistance. These include 8,000 tents, 17,000 shelter kits and food rations for 71,000 families. South Korea is dispatching tents, blankets and water purifiers worth $200,000. An Oman-based company, Norway and Denmark are also sending relief items. The spokesperson said the Emergency Relief Cell in the Foreign Ministry has also been designated as the focal point to coordinate international assistance with regard to dengue fever. A team of Sri Lankan doctors is already in Pakistan while a team of 19 Indonesian medics is expected to arrive soon to assist in efforts to control the spread of the disease.
