US responsible if Pak ‘fails’ on terror: Khar
Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has said the United States would be responsible if Pakistan fails in the war against terrorism.
Islamabad: Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has said the United States would be responsible if Pakistan fails in the war against terrorism after the US Senate agreed to freeze close to 700 million dollars in aid to Islamabad.
She was briefing to the Parliamentary Committee on National Security after the US Senate’s decision.
“We are talking to other countries for the release of US aid. Relations with US are on hold and would proceed further if parliament, one is about NATO supply line and the other is about ministry of defence,” the Daily Times quoted Khar, as saying.
She further said the Defence Committee has clearly stated that relations with the US, ISAF and NATO would be reviewed.
Khar also briefed the Parliamentary Committee on Government’s Agreements with the United States and NATO.
According to reports, she produced details of all written and oral agreements and assurances given to the US and NATO before the committee, adding that Washington would be responsible for potential defeat in Afghanistan.
Pakistan could not fight war on terror alone, and it would approach other countries to get the aid restored, Khar added.
