Pakistan Raises Sovereignty Issue With US Special Envoy


Pakistan Thursday raised the issue of its sovereignty violation in meeting with President Obama’s special envoy for the region, Marc Grossman, and emphasized that it shall be respected.

US Special Envoy Marc Gorssman arrived here Wednesday night ahead of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s expected visit to the country and immediately after Senator John Kerry, who visit Islamabad to “reset” the strained ties between the two war allies.


Grossman held meetings with State Minister for Foreign Affairs, Hina Rabbani Khar, military chief Ashfaq Pervez Kayani and Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) Shujja Pasha.

Official sources said that Minister Khar told the US envoy that Pakistans sovereignty shall be respected.

She mentioned sacrifices that Pakistan has made in fight against terrorism.

Pakistan is facing a tough situation since US killed Osama in a Hollywood style unilateral operation inside the country.

Pakistan was not taken into confidence before the operation. Islamabads ignorance of Osamas hideout has raised speculations in the west that some elements within ISI had helped Osama.

Senator Kerry’s visit helped ease tension between the two countries and he announced that the two countries have agreed to work together in any future action against high value targets in Pakistan.
