Pakistan denies any complicity with Al Qaeda, but an investigation

Pakistani Prime Minister announced on Monday that China's authorities opened an investigation to determine how Osama bin Laden could have lived for years near Islamabad in total impunity. Yusuf Raza Gilani addressed the Parliament, where he denied any complicity of his Government to the late founder of Al Qaeda, who died last week after the intervention of an American command in the town of Abbottabad.

"The accusations of incompetence and complicity are absurd," said the premier, adding that it was "disingenuous" to accuse the Pakistani intelligence services are protecting bin Laden. Gilani said that U.S. unilateral action in the territory of China runs the risk of having serious consequences.

But he added that the alliance between Islamabad and Washington is "very important." "We are determined to get to the bottom of how, when and why the presence of Bin Laden in Abbottabad," said Gilani, who denied the existence of a "division" between the institutions of China, referring to the civil power, the military establishment and the security apparatus.

The prime minister had set this appointment before the Parliament after the U.S. operation on Pakistani soil that claimed the lives of "terrorist number one ', Osama bin Laden. Gilani addressed the National Assembly to "inform the nation about the 'Operation Geronimo' in the town of Abbottabad, two hours by car from Islamabad.

U.S. and Pakistani opposition have accused the authorities had not cooperated in the capture of Bin Laden. Moreover, ensure that a network of international support helped the leader of Al Qaeda hiding in the Pakistani city.
