ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Friday denounced as "extremely irresponsible" comments by the top-ranking US military officer that elements of the Pakistan government had sanctioned the killing of a Pakistani journalist in May.

The remarks by Admiral Mike Mullen are likely to place new strains on Pakistan-US ties, already seriously damaged following the killing of Osama bin Laden by US forces in Pakistan in May.

The death of journalist Syed Saleem Shahzad prompted intense speculation about the possible involvement of the Pakistan military's powerful spy agency, Inter Services Intelligence (ISI), but Mullen said on Thursday he could not confirm involvement of the ISI.
