All options open if attacked: Hina

ISLAMABAD: Foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar on Saturday warned the United States against sending ground troops to her country to fight Haqqani network.

Khar said in an interview Saturday that there are red lines and rules of engagement with America, which should not be broken.

“It opens all kinds of doors and all kinds of options,” she said. The comment was in response to a question about the possibility of US troops coming to Pakistan.

Khar, however, insisted that Pakistan’s policy was to seek a more intensive engagement with the US and that she would like to discourage any blame game.

“If many of your goals are not achieved, you do not make someone a scapegoat,” she said, addressing the US.

Khar warned the United States is risking losing an ally in the war on terror.
