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.
