Pakistan on Thursday warned the US and India against any further covert operation in Pakistani territory, saying this would lead to a "terrible catastrophe".

Admitting that the US assault that killed Osama bin Laden did achieve "important results", foreign secretary Salman Bashir told the media: "This cannot be taken as a rule."

"There should be no doubt that Pakistan has a capacity to ensure its own defence," he said.

In an apparent reference to India, Bashir said: "Any other country that would ever act (similarly) on the assumption that it has the might ... will find it has made a basic miscalculation."

He added: "We see a lot of bravado in our region... from the military, air force, which state that this can be repeated.

"We feel that sort of misadventure or miscalculation will result in a catastrophe."
