Washington: Mar 21: (CMC)   Asserting that al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was an enemy of Pakistan, Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar on Wednesday said a joint US-Pak operation to kill him would have been more useful in carrying out the partnership between the two countries. 
"Pakistan has repeatedly said that bin Laden was an enemy," Khar told MSNBC in an interview. 
"Pakistani intelligence; Pakistani military has hunted down more al-Qaeda operatives than anywhere else in the world. So, al-Qaeda happens to be an enemy for Pakistan. There is no denying that," she argued in response to a question.  

"However, again, as I mentioned, a joint approach, a joint operation, would have obviously been much more useful to carry on the partnership and to carry on efforts to be able to achieve what I am calling common objectives," she said. 
Bin Laden was killed in May 2011 in a covert raid by special US forces in Pakistan's garrison town of Abbottabad.
