Musharraf tells US it is not welcome to join fight against al-Qaida

President Pervez Musharraf said US troops are not welcome to join the fight against al-Qaida on Pakistani soil, despite the growing threat from Islamic extremists. Musharraf warned in an interview published Friday that Pakistan would resist any unilateral US military action against militants sheltering in its lawless, tribal regions near the Afghan border. "I challenge anybody coming into our mountains," he told Singapore's The Straits Times newspaper. "They would regret that day."
