Pak will retaliate attack

world Updated: Dec 02, 2010 01:21 IST

In the tense post 26/11 scenario, Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari had told the US that Islamabad would have no option but to respond militarily if India chose to launch an attack on its territory, secret US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks show.

In a meeting with the then- US Ambassador to Pakistan Anne Patterson, "Zardari said he had been briefed by Lt General Shuja Pasha (the ISI chief) on his meeting with DCIA (Director of the Central Intelligence Agency), and he had approved the release of 'tearline' information to the Indians. He wanted to emphasise he (and General Kayani) were fully committed to better relations with India," the cable said.
