ISLAMABAD - Taking serious view of the reported US missile strikes in South Waziristan, Pakistan Monday warned the US that it could harm relations between the two countries. Well-placed sources told TheNation that Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General Tariq Majid told head of the US Central Command Lt-Gen Martin Dempsey that 'any violation in this regard could be detrimental to bilateral relations'. The warning by General Tariq came hours after a suspected US missile strike in Pakistan's South Waziristan tribal region. An ISPR release issued on Monday said that Tariq Majid while expressing his concern over repeated cross-border missile attacks, firing by the coalition and Afghan forces, said that Pakistan's sovereignty and territorial integrity must be respected, adding 'any violation in this regard could be detrimental to bilateral relations'. Gen Majid "also re-emphasized that Pakistan armed forces are capable of handling any challenges to our security." He said the "baseless allegations against Pakistan could affect mutual trust and would definitely influence our efforts in the war against terror." ISPR said that Lt-Gen Martin E Dempsey, acting Commander US Centcom, called on Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) and both held a wide-ranging discussion with CJCSC, General Tariq Majid on matters of mutual interest between the two countries and other avenues of military cooperation. They also exchanged views on current security environment of the region with a focus on situation in Frontier Regions, Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Gen Majid emphasized the need to have a collaborative approach among the coalition forces. He also highlighted that the political process should be given chance over the kinetic approach and a broad based consensus on the strategy should be worked out by Pakistan to deal with terrorism for a real solution to the problem rather than indulging in blame game. There is a dire need to break the nexus of drug trafficking in Afghanistan, which is the lifeline of terror outfits, he added.
