‘Pakistan will no more protect someone else’s interests’

PESHAWAR, 09 March: Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Khwaja Asif has said that Islamabad would no more protect United States’ or any country’s interests.
Delivering a policy statement in the National Assembly on Friday, the Foreign Minister said that Pakistan would only defend its own interests.
He said the United States was not serious in establishing peace in Afghanistan. He said Pakistan and some other countries of the region had been striving to restore durable peace in Afghanistan as peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan is in the best interest of the region.
“Despite the presence of the US and NATO troops in Afghanistan, the insurgents Taliban have been operating in 43 percent of the country. Besides, the production of heroin in the war-ravaged country has increased manifold but still they have been blaming Pakistan for facilitating the Haqqani Network,” he remarked.
Khawaja Asif said that Pakistan had fought America’s war against Russia in Afghanistan and committed the same mistake after 9/11. “The United States wants Pakistan to become a proxy and defend its interests. We will only defend our own interests,” he maintained.
“Unfortunately, our rulers in past made commitments for their personal gains and overlooked the interests of Pakistan.
Referring to the ongoing conflicts in the Arab countries, Khwaja Asif said the Muslim Ummah didn’t need any external enemy. “Almost all the Muslim countries are not united. They are neither ready to talk to each other. Everybody knows what is being happening in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Palestine, Libya and other countries, is for the sake of the throne,” he maintained.
