 Obama rules out US troops in Pakistan
 Updated at: 1938 PST,  Sunday, March 29, 2009
 WASHINGTON: US President Barack Obama says he will consult with Pakistan's leaders before going after terrorist hideouts in their country.

He also wants Pakistan to be more accountable, but is ruling out deploying U.S. troops there.

In Obama's words, his Afghanistan strategy “does not change the recognition of Pakistan as a sovereign government.''

In an interview with American TV channel, Obama discusses the tenuous security situation in that region.

He says, “Unless we get a handle on it now, we're gonna be in trouble.''

Obama adds that his new strategy is "not going to be an open-ended commitment of infinite resources'' from the United States.
