Islamabad, Sept 22 (ANI): Pakistan's Foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar has dismissed the notion that her country had any special responsibility to deal with the militant group Haqqanis.

Khar announced that her country is likely to hold confidential talks with the US and Afghanistan in a bid to improve a three-way counterterrorism relationship beset by misunderstandings.

According to the News, she, however, refused to say whether her government would be willing in its three-way talks with the US and Afghanistan to commit to taking on the Haqqanis militarily.

Khar also sharply criticized US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta for his comments about supposed Pakistani military operations, the paper said.

Khar said Panetta was speaking "beyond his scope."

"He is obviously welcome to talk about what military action will take place by American troops," Khar said, but not Pakistan's.

She in turn, pointed a finger back at the United States for the "hundreds" of militants crossing the border from Afghanistan and "slaughtering our soldiers," including 17 troops who were beheaded recently, the report said. (ANI)
