The New York Times said on Friday that Washington and Islamabad must now do everything they can to repair relations, starting with a joint investigation and a full public report of its findings. Pakistan has been aggrieved by a senseless attack carried out by the US. It is a violation of international law and our sovereignty. The United States needs repair the disaffection it has created among the people of Pakistan by its actions. If US had any proof of terrorist activities being carried out, it should have informed the Pakistan army and government who could have taken the necessary action on its behalf. Unilateral vigilante actions carried by US are not making matters easier for Islamabad because they deplete public support in Pakistan for the war on terror. It is high time the US repairs its relations with Pakistan by treating us with respect and not as a partner of convenience. -ZULFIKAR SAEED, Islamabad via e-mail, June 14.
