US Afghan Envoy Angers Pakistan
Edited on Tue Apr-06-04 11:02 PM by Eye and Monkey

Pakistan has angrily denounced comments made by the US ambassador to Afghanistan that America may move against "terrorists" based in Pakistan. Pakistan's information minister said the army could deal with the problem and the comments were "harmful". He said Pakistan would never allow foreign troops on its soil.

Islamabad has repeatedly rejected Afghan complaints that it is not doing enough to stop cross-border raids by al-Qaeda and Taleban remnants.

Correspondents say the issue of American troops being deployed in Pakistan is extremely sensitive and likely to be deeply unpopular among most of the public.
