WASHINGTON: To invite Pakistan to abandon their erroneous perception of India as a security threat, U.S. President Barack Obama said he would for another raid like the one that killed bin Laden, if Islamabad fails to act on threats in the country against the United States or its allies.
“Our task is to ensure that the United States. We are very respectful of the sovereignty of Pakistan. But we can not allow someone who is actively planning to kill our people or the people of our allies. We can not allow this kind of assets plan occur without our action, “he told the BBC in an interview broadcast this weekend.
The warning came from U.S. President in the face of a resolution adopted by the members of Pakistan earlier this month said the country “will not tolerate such actions and the repetition of unilateral action could have dire consequences for peace and security in the region and the world. “
But Obama, regardless of the position of Islamabad, saying that Washington has always been aware that he is ready to act if Pakistan did not, and his administration was not the first to say so.
“Our hope and our expectation is that we can achieve this objective in a manner that fully respects the sovereignty of Pakistan. But I had a secret. I said it when I ran for President, if I ‘had a clear shot at Bin Laden, Obama said when asked if he would order a second raid, if a high value target was detected.
BBC: You must take it.
Obama: What I’d need.
In the same vein, Obama joined Pakistan to conduct its concern to India, a diagnosis he said he and British Prime Minister David Cameron shared.
“I think what the Prime Minister understands Cameron, which I understand is that Pakistan has been very obsessed with India. They see it as their existential threat. I think it’s wrong,” said Obama, restating his opinion expressed before.
The comments, which have been clearly demonstrated in Pakistan and India for its obsession with the military, Obama said, “peace between India and Pakistan, Pakistan would work well” because it frees resources and trade capacity of Pakistan, and ” make progress in the field that you can see India do. “
“But it’s their (Pakistani) trend. ‘Was that long-term direction,” he added sadly. “So consider issues such as Afghanistan. Or the border region is FATA (Federally Administered Tribal Areas) through the lens of what this means for us in competition with India.”
U.S. president said that Washington has tried to talk to the Pakistanis, as you can redirect its strategy in order to understand that the biggest threat to Pakistan and its stability is barefoot, but did not report any progress much less successful thing.
If the United States and Pakistan has not acted and the Pakistanis do not take control of the situation, then “they will see a significant destabilization of the country, he warned.
