Islamabad, Sep.6 (ANI): Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) chief Fazlur Rehman has said the United States want to create a mini Pentagon in Islamabad.

The Nation quoted Rehman as saying that US' plans are threatening the country's sovereignty.

He warned that the presence of the controversial US firm 'Blackwater' inside Pakistan would cause bloodshed.

Meanwhile, the Chinese Embassy has clarified its concerns over US expansion plans.

Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Luo Zhaohui had told a press conference here: "China has concerns over expansion of US embassy in Islamabad and the United States should expand its embassy by materializing rules and regulations of Pakistan."

A second statement issued by the Chinese Embassy said that Zhaohui's comments were misinterpreted by the media.

It also denied the presence of armed personnel in the Embassy and added that the security of the Embassy was looked after by the Pakistani Government. (ANI)
