Pakistan will never become proxy of US, says Khawaja Asif
Islamabad (Web Desk): Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said on Friday that the United States wants us to be its proxy state, in respond to that he added; Pakistan will never become a proxy of the US.
“The enemy has crossed the ocean and is fomenting conflict in Syria, Afghanistan and other states while leaders of the Muslim World facilitate the enemy,” said Asif, in an apparent reference to the US while addressing the national Assembly.
Talking about the existence of Daesh in Afghanistan, Asif said the fanatic outfit has not been wiped out but has only altered its address.
He explained further that, “Pakistan is being targeted specifically since it enjoys a leadership status in the Muslim World,”
The foreign minister said Pakistan did not take part in the Yemen war, adding that it wants Iran and Saudi Arabia to end their differences.
We will not guard any other power but protect our own interests, he asserted.
Khawaja Asif also wished to see a peaceful and nonviolent Afghanistan.
