Pakistan "most dangerous country" in S. Asia

Richard Haass, a foreign policy advisor to President Bush, says that Pakistan is the most dangerous country in South Asia.

Pakistan is the "most dangerous country" in South Asia, says Richard Haass, former State Department official and a foreign policy adviser to the Bush administration.

Haass, who is head of the American Council on Foreign Policy and was in New Delhi last week, was responding to a question on NBC television news on the reported attempt on President Pervez Musharraf's life on Sunday.

Haass said Pakistan was dangerous because it had nuclear weapons and a military regime that was not entirely in control of the country.

Speaking at a seminar in New Delhi, Haass described Pakistan as a "threat to the entire South Asian region and the world."
