Pakistan PM Warns of ‘Full Force’ Response to Future U.S. Raids
Pakistan’s prime minister warned the United States Monday that his country could respond to any future U.S. raids on its soil with “full force,” in the latest escalation of rhetoric in the wake of Usama bin Laden’s death.
Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, like other officials in Islamabad, said the killing of bin Laden in northern Pakistan was a positive step. But, reflecting concerns that the unilateral strike violated his country’s sovereignty, Gilani sent a clear message to the United States. He warned any “overt or covert” attack would be met with a “matching response” in the future.
