AbstractOn May 2, 2011, American special forces unilaterally crossed into the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, a United Nations member country, with the intent of removing Osama bin Laden as leader of the militant Islamist group al-Qaeda. In the Resolution on Unilateral US Forces Action in Abbottabad on that same day, the Pakistan General Assembly swiftly condemned the attack as a "gross violation of Pakistan's sovereignty and territorial integrity."
