Islamabad, July 26 (ANI): Expressing concern over a reported NATO attack in Pakistani tribal areas, President Pervez Musharraf warned a U-S think-tank on Saturday that no such attacks will be tolerated in future, and that Pakistan reserves the right to retaliate.
Talking to a senior advisor of the US think-tank Dr Hormon Olmen in Rawalpindi, Musharaf asserted that the Afghan-based NATO forces are not being attacked from the Pakistani soil nor is any cross-border activity taking place from here.
Sources told Geo News that the President reiterated that a stable Afghanistan is in the interest of Pakistan, and said baseless allegations against Pakistan could affect the global war on terror.
Dr. Olmen told the President that the Pak-Afghan border security is a joint responsibility of both the countries and a cooperation between them is the need of the hour. (ANI)
