RAWALPINDI: An extraordinary meeting held Wednesday between Army chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and top US military commander Admiral Mike Mullen in Rawalpindi.
Army chief General Kayani lodged a protest with the top US military commander over the recent violations of its territorial boundary by the Afghanistan-based foreign troops.
Both military chiefs discussed the issues related to the war on terror and Pak-Afghan borders. Besides this, they discussed recent statements issued by the two sides regarding US attacks inside Pakistan’s territory.
General Kayani said there is not agreement or understanding between two countries which allows US to carry out attacks inside Pakistani boundary.
He made it clear that it was the sole authority of Pakistan army to launch attack inside its territorial boundaries. General Kayani further said Angoor Adda-like incidents would affect the ongoing cooperation between US and Pakistan.
US commander is holding meeting with Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani while General Kayani is also present in the meeting.
Admiral Mullen will also hold meetings with Joint Chief Staff Committee and other officials.
