Pakistan warns US against border raid

Pakistani Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani on Tuesday complained of negative messages from Washington and warned that any U.S. raid across the Afghan border to target Haqqani group insurgents would be a violation of his country's sovereignty.

"The negative messaging, naturally that is disturbing my people," Gilani told Reuters in an interview. "If there are messaging that are not appropriate to our friendship, then naturally it is extremely diffcult to concvince my public."

"We are a sovereign country. How can they come and raid in our country," he added, when asked how Islamabad would respond if there was a unilateral military operation by the United States inside Pakistan.
