Tensions Continue To Rise Between US And Pakistan
Pakistan’s parliament will discuss the country’s ties to the U.S., after an American drone strike killed Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud last week.
Pakistanis reacted angrily, saying the strike violated its sovereignty.
“The two sides will continue to need each other and to continue to distrust each other,” Owen Bennett Jones, a BBC contributor based in Pakistan, told Here & Now‘s Robin Young.
