Pakistan foreign minister: U.S. apology for border strike not enough

Pakistan's foreign minister says an apology by the U.S. government for the NATO airstrike that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers would not satisfy the Pakistani government, and the attack demanded a reassessment of Islamabad's partnership with the United States.

"The incident was grave enough for an apology not to be good enough," said Foreign Minster Hina Rabbani Khar in a wide-ranging interview with CNN's Reza Sayah at her home in Islamabad.

"This did require a complete relook at the terms of engagement with the United States of America."

In November, U.S.-Pakistan relations plunged to an all-time low when NATO fighter jets attacked a Pakistani checkpoint near the Afghan border, killing 24 Pakistani soldiers. The U.S. government expressed regret over the incident but has yet to issue a direct apology.

On Monday, Gen. John Allen told Pentagon reporters no U.S. or NATO personnel would be criminally charged but some administrative measure would be taken.

"The investigation was - was clear that there was no criminal dereliction of duty that was found in the investigation. But I did take administrative measures," said Allen, who commands all U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan.

President Barack Obama is set to meet with Pakistan's Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Tuesday.
