Pakistan warned the United States it risks losing an ally if it continued to accuse Islamabad of playing a double game in the war against militancy, escalating the crisis in relations between the two countries.
Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar was responding to comments by U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen, who said Pakistan's top spy agency supported attacks on the U.S. Embassy and other targets by the Haqqani network, the most violent and effective faction among Islamic Taliban militants in Afghanistan.
It is the most serious allegation leveled by the United States against nuclear-armed and Muslim-majority Pakistan since they began an alliance in the "war on terrorism" a decade ago.
"You will lose an ally," Khar told Geo TV in New York in remarks broadcast on Friday.
"You cannot afford to alienate Pakistan, you cannot afford to alienate the Pakistani people. If you are choosing to do so and if they are choosing to do so it will be at their own cost."
The White House on Friday reiterated its call for Pakistan to cut its ties to the Haqqani network and shut down safe havens on the Afghanistan-Pakistan frontier.

The Obama Administration dithering in the past has brought us to this point and now he will dither further insuring danger for America.
The kid in the white hut will merely double the next check he writes out to them. Since OBL went for a swim, he’s sent them at least two with lots of zeros.
Hey Pocketston, go ahead, make our day. BTW, consider the target list just increased 100 fold for the drones.
Pakistan is an ally in exactly the same way that Obama’s Recovery is a Recovery.
With friends like that, who needs enemies?
A so called ally that actively plays footsie with our enemies is no ally.
If they were an ally, they would have announced investigations and prosecutions of individuals involved. When they deny all knowledge they are admitting guilt.
Pakistan is our enemy. They are trying to wear us out while improving their hold on Afghanistan to further their ambitions versus India.
If they stop being our ally can we stop sending them money?
didn’t the kid in the white house visit
Good riddance Pakistan...we have another and better ally in India...your arch-nemesis. We should have cut loose Pakistan a decade ago.... =.=
We should offer the Pashtun tribes help in carving their own country out of Pakistan’s Waziristan province and parts of north Afghanistan. I guarantee they would go for it. The Paki ISI would crap their collective pants.
Pakistan is our “ally”?? Since when? When they gave away nuke info? When they sheltered Bin Laden? When they armed the Taliban?
Hey Khar, some allies aren’t worth having. Ya know?
“Pakistan warned the United States it risks losing an ally if it continued to accuse Islamabad of playing a double game in the war against militancy...”
In other words: stop telling the world the truth about us.
