Adm. Mullen discusses Pakistan with Zakaria

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria interviews Admiral Mike Mullen, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, about the recent escalation of words between the U.S. and Pakistan.  Pakistan’s Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani denies any official government links between elements of Pakistan’s intelligence service, ISI, and the terrorist Haqqani Network, which has been connected to attacks on coalition troops in Afghanistan.   Admiral Mullen acknowledges some positive cooperation between Pakistan and coalition forces, but urges that Pakistan’s government needs to take additional steps to stop Haqqani Network activities in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border region.

This interview will air in its entirety on FAREED ZAKARIA GPS on Sunday, October 2 at 10:00am ET and PT on CNN/U.S., and at 4:00pm ET on CNN International.
