Pakistani PM calls back FM over U.S. charge


09:59, September 26, 2011

ISLAMABAD, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- Pakistani Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani on Sunday called back Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, who is present at the UN General Assembly in New York, after Washington accused Islamabad of supporting Taliban- allied militants, official sources said.

U.S. top defense officials said Thursday the Haqqani network was supported by Pakistan's intelligence agency in carrying out the September 13 attack on the U.S. embassy in Kabul and the truck bomb attack on a military base in Maidan Wardak province in Afghanistan on September 11.

The White House urged Islamabad on Friday to break any link with the militant group and take strong and immediate action against this network on its soil.

Washington has threatened to take unilateral action against the Haqqani network in Pakistan if the authorities there failed to take action against the group.

Pakistan denied the U.S. charges with Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar warning that the U.S. could lose Pakistan as an ally.

The Prime Minister called several top politicians including the opposition leader Nawaz Sharif to ask for their support, a spokesman for the PM office said.

The Prime Minister invited leaders of various political parties to attend a national conference to brief them on security conditions in Pakistan and the situation in the region.

Almost all political leaders said they would back the government to meet every challenge.
