US declines to comment on raid inside Pakistan
September 04, 2008 11:52 IST
"I don't have anything for you on Pakistan, except to say that obviously we are working very closely with the civilian government there," Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice [Images] said.
However, the state secretary said she was "relieved" that an apparent bid by terrorists on the life of Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani [Images] did not succeed.
State department spokesman Sean McCormack also refused to comment on the American raid inside Pakistan.
Gilani's car was fired at by unknown assailants near the garrison city of Rawalpindi while he was returning from an official visit to the eastern city of Lahore [Images] but no one was injured in the incident.
