NEW YORK - Pakistan has warned against any intrusion by US troops to fight militants inside Pakistani territory as the simmering tensions over Pakistans alleged collusion with Afghan militants come to a boil. Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, who is leading Pakistans delegation to the UN General Assembly, said in an interview Saturday that there are red lines and rules of engagement with America, which should not be broken. It opens all kinds of doors and all kinds of options, she told a Pakistani news channel. The comment was in response to a question about the possibility of US troops charging into Pakistan. The foreign minister, however, insisted that Pakistans policy was to seek a more intensive engagement with the US and that she would like to discourage any blame game. If many of your goals are not achieved, you do not make someone a scapegoat, she said, addressing the US. In an interview aired on CBS television network, she denied absolutely and unequivocally the allegations by the US Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman, Admiral Mike Mullen, that ISI was helping militants attack US targets inside Afghanistan. She said that the reaction among the people of Pakistan over statements by Mullen and other US officials was exceptionally hostile. We are part of the solution, Hina said. We are not part of the problem. And if you continue to drive us in the other direction; unfortunately you will not only alienate the government of Pakistan, which is reaching out to you, which has been a worthy ally, Im more concerned you will [alienate] the 180 million Pakistanis that your government always talks about reaching out to. Appearing on MSNBC, Hina challenged the United States to provide hard evidence to back up its charges, which she vehemently denied. The foreign minister dismissed Mullens allegations and demanded that if there is serious evidence for such public recriminations to be made, that evidence should be shared with us, that we should be considered worthy partners. And, if that is not the case, I am afraid we will both lose out. We, in Pakistan, have a huge problem quite frankly speaking with public statements which are coming in from this country (the US), which point fingers at Pakistan, which are completely unnecessary because our troops, our military, which is (being) considered to be hand-in-glove (with terrorists), is the one who has lost its soldiers (in the war on terror). Asked about Mullens charges, she said, I would like to tell your public that we have lost more soldiers than all of Nato (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) forces combined. This is indeed a big task. We have to fight together. She questioned why Mullen and other US officials in the midst of this war on terror want to create scapegoats, because success as we perceived it may not be coming.If such public recriminations continued, she said, Then we would all lose out. If they are choosing to do so, it will be at their own cost, Hina told a private Pakistani channel the other day. Anything which is said about an ally, about a partner publicly to recriminate it, to humiliate it is not acceptable, she added. Agencies add: Pakistan Ambassador in UN Abdullah Hussain Haroon also warned that if Pakistan is attacked the reaction would be counterproductive. In an interview to an Indian television, the ambassador said that Pakistan has sacrificed a lot in the war against terrorism; therefore, the accusations against Pakistan should come to an end. He stressed that the issues should be resolved through dialogue and recalled the diplomacy dictum that there are no permanent friends and foes in international politics.
