Tensions among Pakistan, Afghanistan and the United States escalated when the Pakistan’s Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani warned that there would be “no more business as usual” with Washington after a NATO aircraft killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.
Pakistani military official insisted on November 28, 2011 that it had not fired first in the incident, adding that the NATO’s helicopter shoot upon friendly troops. Gilani stated that Pakistan was re-evaluating their relationship with USA.
