FM Khar says NATO attack has raised serious questions PDF Print E-mail
WASHINGTON, Nov 30 (APP): Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has said the NATO attack on Pakistani Mohmand checkposts is not an isolated incident and has raised much bigger questions than whether Islamabad will join an investigation into the event. “I think the questions raised in Pakistan are much larger than whether we will participate in the investigation or not. I want to emphasize on the fact that this is not an isolated incident,” she told National Public Radio in an interview in the wake of November 26 strike that resulted in deaths of 24 Pakistani soldiers.
Khar, interviewed while she was in Lahore on Tuesday, was underscoring the importance Pakistan attaches to respect for its sovereignty in the fight against terrorists along the Afghan border. The foreign minister, pressing her point, also pointed out the May 2 unilateral raid on Abbottabad and the questions that it raised about the red lines that Pakistan has put in place, while cooperating with the international community in the anti-terror fight.
“If the terms of engagement are not clearly understood, are not clearly respected, that gives each of the parties the right to go back and reassess the situation that I think Pakistan is, today, just exercising that right.” Following the deadly attack, Khar said, Islamabad has to do “some serious introspection to see what we make of the role that we play within the international efforts in Afghanistan.
“As to the question of sovereignty of Pakistan, this question of territorial integrity of Pakistan, and really, the questions are being asked that - is it too much of a cost that Pakistan has paid?”
Pakistan, the foreign minister said, feels its role in the decade-old fight against terror has been “misinterpreted, has not been recognized, has not been appreciated enough.”
“And, on top of that, to have an incident in which we feel, at best, giving the benefit of doubt, our soldiers lost their lives to an extremely callous attitude. This episode has obviously created a lot of rage in Pakistan because this is not the first time that Pakistan has lost its soldiers to NATO fire.”
While Pakistan would like to wait for detailed investigations, the current briefings “seem to be pointing towards a direction which is not a happy case to be in,” the chief Pakistani diplomat elaborated in answer to a question whether the NATO strike was deliberate.
“If it is a deliberate attempt, then the questions that I referred to would obviously be much, much, much more serious,” the foreign minister remarked.  
“I’m not going to run to any conclusion and I hope that is not true, but the fact of the matter is that even if it is a mistake, its certainly a callous mistake because this did not happen over five minutes. This was into hours, for sure, and that leaves many, many unanswered questions,” she responded to another question.
She disagreed with the proposition that U.S. assistance for Pakistan limits her country’s leverage in responding to such incidents and termed the notion of Pakistan’s dependence on U.S. assistance as exaggeration.
“I would hope not because I think, you know, I like to call it the dependency syndrome. It’s over-exaggerated. I think we have to really get grips on what this relationship is really about.  And for Pakistan, this relationship is not about aid and assistance.  I think there are far too many much more important strategic goals and objectives that we wish to achieve.
“And the question of sovereignty is an extremely important one and this is not the first time. You can have a space for mistakes once. You can have it twice, but you can not have it, you know, for eight times. These types of engagement are not acceptable to the Pakistani public. They will certainly not be acceptable to the parliament of Pakistan and to the government of Pakistan.”
