Washington: Former Pakistan envoy to the US, Husain Haqqani has said that while his country was a victim of terror, it was also to blame for not using full force of the state to eliminate militant groups.

Haqqani said that Pakistan`s sovereignty was being violated, not just by the US drone strikes, but also by militant groups that use the country as a base to carry out attacks, reports The Express Tribune. Haqqani, while speaking at the launch of the Asia Society`s report on The US and South Asia after Afghanistan, said Pakistan has to cut all ties with the militant groups.

The event`s speakers included former US ambassadors to Pakistan Wendy Chamberlin and Cameron Munter, former US Assistant Secretary of State for South Asian Affairs Karl Inderfurth and the report`s author and Asia Society fellow Alexander Evans.
