NEW YORK - Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has called on the United States to stop threatening Pakistan, its partner in the war against terrorism, as she brushed aside allegations about Pakistani intelligence agencys collusion with the Haqqani groups attacks against American targets in Afghanistan. I think we must not be tested more than we have the ability to bear, she said in an interview with Al-Jazeera television. Responding to questions, Khar, who is in New York leading Pakistans delegation to the UN General Assembly, rejected US accusations against the Pakistani intelligence agency, saying it has no links to the Haqqani network. If we talk about links, I am sure the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) also has links with many terrorist organisations around the world, by which we mean intelligence links, she said. And this particular network, which [the United States] continues to talk about, is a network which was the blue-eyed boy of the CIA itself for many years. Specifically asked about Admiral Mike Mullen statement that the Haqqani group acts as a veritable arm of ISI, the foreign minister said, It is something that goes very, very unappreciated on our side. This is unsubstantiated. No evidence has been shared with us. Partners and allies, she said, do not talk to each other through public statements. Pakistan had taken up the matter with the United States, but the spate of hostile statements coming from senior US officials meant that Washington had taken policy decision. If that was the case then We have the right to make our own decision. Khar went to say that scapegoating and blame games would not help. Pakistan wanted to be a US partner. I just hope that well be given a chance to co-operate with each other and the doors will remain open - because statements like this are pretty much close to shutting those doors, she added. Such statement would alienate the people of Pakistan. Replying to a question, the foreign minister said the drone attacks not only violated Pakistans sovereignty, they were also counterproductive, and greatly anger the people Pakistan. Meanwhile, US Deputy Secretary of State for South Asia Robert Blake stressed the need for enhancing ties with Pakistan. Talking to VOA Monday, he said: It is important for all of us to move forward and work together. He said Pakistans role in US troops withdrawal from Afghanistan is important and the United States wants Pakistan on their side in the future strategy as it is a valuable ally. We need to help people and government of Pakistan in resolving their political, economic and security problems and in fact it is the time to focus on these issues, he added.
