WASHINGTON (Monitoring desk): Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Pakistan Peoples Party Chairperson questioned whether the United States intended on prolonging Afghan-war by keeping its troops stationed in the war-truck country.
He further asked if the US was planning to promptly withdraw its troops to change the course of Afghan-war.
During a press conference in Washington, DC, Bilawal expressed that the United States should take Pakistan into confidence as to its endeavors regarding Afghan-war and peace in the region, which he said was closely tied to peace in Pakistan.
Furthermore, he said economic stability in Pakistan was directly proportional to economic conditions in Afghanistan.
However, terrorism and extremism should be combated globally with unity as they are affecting every country worldwide, opined Bilawal.
Terrorism must not be equated to Islam, he stated.
Bilawal shed light on Pakistan’s role against Terrorism; highlighting the country’s endeavors in North and South Waziristan, operations in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas also referred to as ‘hotbed’ of terrorism.
Unfortunately the world could not be acquainted with the rigorous success of Pakistan’s actions against terrorism due the absence of a foreign affairs minister for four long years, he lamented.
Speaking about his party, Bilawal said the PPP was the only party that could make Pakistan a peaceful and progressive country.
Pakistan is not prepared to be anyone’s scapegoat in Afghan war
NEW YORK/KARACHI: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi during his address to the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York said that Pakistan is not prepared to be anyone’s scapegoat in Afghanistan war.
We have done a lot. Now its world turn to respect Pakistan sacrifices and territorial sovereignty. India is involved in most intensive human rights violations in Kashmir.
In what marked his debut at the highest international diplomacy after taking over the office last month following former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s ouster in July Abbasi delivered a crisp and concise speech that touched upon almost every key factor positive for or detrimental to Pakistan’s growth and development.
