ISLAMABAD, Sep 1 (APP): Minister for Defence Engineer Khurram Dastgir
Khan on Friday said a comprehensive dialogue was essential between Pakistan and America for removing misunderstandings.
Talking to a private news channel, the minister said Pakistan wanted
to cooperate with the United States (US) for eliminating terrorism.
He said Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif would visit
China and Russia after the Eid-ul-Azha for consultations.
He said Pakistan had played a pivotal role for the elimination of
Al-Qaeda, adding Pakistan had rendered sacrifices in war against terrorism and played a front line state role in this regard.
Replying to a question, he said United States (US) was trying to hide
its failure in Afghanistan.
US President did not discuss Pakistan’s sacrifices in his speech,
rather criticized it which was not fair, he added.
Khurram Dastgir said in the past informal arrangements had proved as
disaster for the country but a proper documented policy and diplomacy would be adopted in future.
He said we would protect our soil and sovereignty on every
cost.
