US attack on Pak imminent: Sherpao

July 13th, 2008 - 4:13 pm ICT by ANI  

Peshawar, July 13 (ANI): Former Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao has sounded serious threats to the countrys sovereignty and integrity, saying that the United States could attack Pakistan any time soon.

There is an imminent danger of US attack on Pakistan, Sherpao told reporters.

His comments came two days after NATO attacked a Pakistani outpost on the Afghan border in South Waziristan, the Daily Times reported.

The government should immediately call a joint session of parliament to discuss the situation and evolve a national consensus, the former minister said.

The countrys security is apolitical issue and we must all be concerned about it, he added.

He, however, said it was difficult to say the US would land boots in the Tribal Areas or continue with airstrikes to target what Washington terms militants. (ANI)
