Immediately after the extension of the remand period of an American official, Raymond A Davis, by a Pakistani Court, US has come out with hard words and threatened to kick Pakistan’s envoy if it fails to release the American official who has been arrested for gunning down two men in Lahore by Friday.
As per report of the sources, Tom Donilon, who is the National Security Advisor told that Obama administration will kick out Pakistani envoy Hussain Haqqani from US. He further said that the administration will even cancel the upcoming visit of President Asif Ali Zardari to Washington if Pakistan does not adhere to the order of US and releases its jailed official.
Moreover, US State Department also said that under international agreements, people carrying diplomatic passports are granted diplomatic immunity. In response to the American demands for Mr. Davis’s release, Pakistani officials say the American will be dealt with in the courts.
Earlier today, a Pakistani Court ordered a jailed American diplomat to remain in custody for 14 more days.
In response to this, as per report of the sources, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Leon E. Panetta, have warned the Pakistani government in telephone calls to Mr. Zardari and Lt. Gen. Ahmad Shuja Pasha that the continued detention of Mr. Davis threatened the foundations of the strategic relationship between the two countries.
However, Davis has claimed that he opened fire after the two armed men followed his car and tried to rob him.Share
