London: A Pakistani diplomat here lost his cool over what he termed as "Pakistan bashing" during a seminar organised by the London School of Economics.

Political Counsellor at the Pakistan High Commission in London Khalid Majid, agitatedly accused certain speakers at the seminar of indulging in "Pakistan bashing".

He was, then repeatedly requested by the Chair and Professor Anatol Leiven of Kings College, London to elaborate on his allegation.

However, the diplomat failed to do so. Lieven had said that the Chinese were worried about the internal situation and the "shambolic and corrupt practices" in Pakistan.

The topic of the seminar was the feasibility of a modern 'Silk Route'.

Pakistani professor at LSE Athar Hussain said that China has significantly changed policy on Kashmir to the disadvantage of Pakistan.

He added, "On the Indian front, there is a misconception that China will always support Pakistan. However, the truth is that China supports Pakistan up to a certain extent and is not going to fight wars for Pakistan since it has its interests very clear."
