Pakistan Rejects U.S. Apology

Relations between Pakistan and the U.S. won’t get better any time soon, according to harsh new statements from Pakistan’s prime minister. In an interview with CNN, Yousuf Raza Gilani said there would be “no more business as usual” with Washington, part of the fallout from a NATO airstrike that killed 24 Pakistani troops over the weekend. Pakistan’s military insists that NATO fired first and that it warned the coalition about the friendly fire. The Army also stood by its decision to block vital U.S. supply routes to Afghanistan. The Pakistani Taliban, meanwhile, appears to be using the incident as a wedge to drive the nations further apart.
