CIA, Pakistan’s spy chief discuss US killer

IRNA – Islamic Republic News Agency Islamabad, Feb 27,IRNA — Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA),Leon E.Panetta, has talked to Pakistan’s spy chief Major General Shuja Pasha over phone and discussed the controversy over U.S.undercover agent,who faces double murder charges,local media reported Saturday. Penetta’s call to his Pakistani counterpart is an attempt to play down reports that CIA has suspended contacts with the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). Besides top level contacts between the U.S. Administration with Pakistan leaders, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, and Pakistan’s army chief, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, also met last week in Oman, and discussed Davis case. The U.S. insists that Mr. Davis enjoys diplomatic immunity and should be freed. The Pakistani government says court will determine the diplomatic immunity. The Foreign Office will make a statement of the question of diplomatic immunity at the next hearing before the Lahore High Court on March 14. Pakistani TV channels reported that the Pakistani ISI chief asked for data of all the CIA men working in Pakistan with the U.S. diplomatic missions or with institutions of other countries. Pakistani police has arrested another U.S. national, Aaron Mark DeHaven. in the northwestern city of Peshawar of illegal stay at a time when the issue of Davis is still unresolved and has caused a deepen row between the two allies. A court in Peshawar Saturday sent DeHaven to jail on a two-week judicial remand as his arrest also created suspicion about the activities of U.S. nationals. He told the police that he is running business in Pakistan. The police in Peshawar Saturday raided several locations to catch his local contacts at the University Town area of the city. The American embassy in Islamabad said that it is arranging consular access through the Government of Pakistan. “Until a U.S. government representative meets with him, we cannot confirm additional details,” a brief embassy statement said. **1771 Islamic Republic News Agency/IRNA NewsCode: 30268572
