Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf says his country will act on intelligence when it's available and take action to do away with Osama Bin Laden.
General Musharraf, appearing on a U.S. television program, CNN's Situation Room, said the U.S. would violate Pakistani sovereignty if it tried to take military action against Bin Laden within Pakistan.
He said Pakistan has the technology and a strong military and can handle what he called "the situation" by itself.
General Musharraf also denied reports that Taleban leader Mullah Muhammad Omar is hiding in Quetta, Pakistan. He called the reports "ridiculous."
He said the Taleban insurgency is not based in Pakistan. He said Taleban insurgents are operating within Afghanistan's borders.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai has blamed Pakistan for daily Taleban attacks within Afghanistan. He says Islamic madrassas (religious schools) in Pakistan are training terrorists for cross-border raids into Afghanistan.
General Musharraf said President Karzai is turning a blind eye to reality
