Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has said President Asif Ali Zardari’s visit to Chicago to attend the two-day NATO summit has brought nothing but disgrace to the nation.
Khan said that despite the death of 40,000 Pakistanis and the loss of Rs 70 billion in a “strangers’ war”, Pakistan’s sacrifices are not being given due consideration.
Addressing a press conference, he also questioned that why the resentment being faced by 48 countries was not being kept in mind while discussing the reopening of NATO supply routes in the Parliament.
“This whole war is being done for the sake of dollars,” The Express Tribune quoted Khan, as saying.
“[Former ambassador to US] Husain Haqqani wrote a book against the Pakistani Army and received USD 100,000 from the American think-tank,” Khan added.
He said that the PTI would announce its agenda regarding the NATO supply routes during a rally in Rawalpindi on May 27.
