US refuses to assure it will not act unilaterally

ISLAMABAD: The US has refused to assure that it would not repeat Abbottabad-like unilateral operation in Pakistan, Geo News reported on Thursday.

The special envoy for Pakistan and Afghanistan Marc Grossman in an exclusive talk with the Editor of The News Muhammad Malick said no Pakistan authority had ever demanded to ink a formal agreement with the US on war on terror.

Marc Grossman, who arrived in Pakistan today, held meetings with President Asif Ali Zardari, Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, DG ISI Lt. Gen. Shuja Pasha.

Refusing to give any solid assurance on not repeating Abbottabad-style unilateral raid in Pakistan, Grossman said the US was broadening the network of cooperation with Pakistan so that there is minimum possibility of a unilateral action in future.

He said it would not be possible to make a joint decision on the transfer of drone technology or raids.
