WASHINGTON -- President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan warned in an interview published Friday that any unilateral attacks by the United States against Al Qaeda and Taliban fighters in his country's tribal areas would be treated as an invasion.
But Mr. Musharraf also left open the possibility of American and Pakistani forces working together in broader combined operations to kill or capture senior Qaeda leaders believed to be hiding in the rugged border area near Afghanistan.
"You're talking about Osama bin Laden; any action against him will be free, if we know where he is, if we have good intelligence," Mr. Musharraf told The Straits Times of Singapore. "The methodology of getting him will be discussed together, and we'll attack the target together."
