Amid a diplomatic row between Pakistan and the US over the secret operation that killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said Washington should not have violated his country's sovereignty to carry out the raid in Abbottabad.
Gilani also made it clear that it will take "some time" for biletaral ties between the US and Pakistan to normalise. "There was no need to (for the US to take) a shortcut or to bypass Pakistan," Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani told reporters who accompanied him on visit to France.
Gilani said US President Barack Obama had acknowledged Pakistan's contribution in the war on terrorism and ongoing intelligence-sharing between the two countries.
Meanwhile, Pakistan's ambassador to the US Hussain Haqqani said that if anybody within the government or security agencies were found to be complicit in hiding Osama they would be held accountable. "Were there cracks through which things fell through? Absolutely. And we'll investigate that," he told ABC News. "Heads will roll, once the investigation has been completed. If those heads are rolled on account of incompetence, we will share that information with you (the US)," he said.
