Pakistan responds back to US President Donald Trump allegations

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has responded to US President Donald Trump’s remarks that “Pakistan doesn’t do a thing for the US”, and asserted that this is a lesson for Pakistani leaders who kept on appeasing America after the September 11 attacks.

Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari said that Trump’s tirade against Pakistan did not take into account the loss of Pakistani lives in the War of Terror and the free space given to elements like Raymond Davis who was charged with homicide in Pakistan.

Trump’s tirade against Pak & his claim that that Pak does not do “a damn thing” for the US shd be a lesson for those Pak ldrs who kept appeasing the US esp after 9/11! The renditions; the loss of Pak lives in US WoT; the free space for Raymond Davis & other operatives; etc etc

“The illegal killings by drone attacks; the list [of atrocities] is endless but once again history shows appeasement does not work. Also, whether China or Iran, US policies of containment and isolation do not coincide with Pakistan’s strategic interests,” She added.

Former foreign minister Khawaja Asif also condemned the US president’s remarks, writing that the relationship between Pakistan and America is one of “betrayals and sanctions”.

He tweeted: “We continue to pay in blood for what we did for the USA from Beda Ber to fighting wars which weren’t ours. [We] reinvented our religion to suit US interests, destroyed our tolerant ethos and replaced it with bigotry and intolerance.”
