Clinton raises issue of US diplomat with Zardari

Washington: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has taken up the issue of release of the American "diplomat", who has been in police custody for killing two people in Lahore, with Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari and Army Chief Ashfaq Pervez Kayani.

"We continue to have contacts with our Pakistani counterparts, and we continue to emphasize the importance of resolving this case," State Department spokesman PJ Crowley told reporters.

Clinton raised this matter during her telephonic conversation with Zardari last week and also when she met Kayani on the sidelines of the Munich conference over the weekend, Crowley said.

"The phone call with President Zardari was largely about this issue," he said.

"We continue to express to them the importance of resolving this. We continue to express to them the fact that our US diplomat has diplomatic immunity and should be eleased," he said, adding that by not releasing its diplomat Pakistan is violating the Vienna Convention.

"We continue to make clear to the Government of akistan that our diplomat has diplomatic immunity, in our view was acting in self-defence, and should be released. Pakistan should fulfill its international obligations under the Vienna Convention. (US) Ambassador (to Pakistan) Munter met today with President Zardari to continue to make that point," Crowley said.
