ISLAMABAD - India seems unhappy with the Pakistan’s effort for enhancing relationship with the United States.
Recently, a powerful Jewish American group’s chairman supported Pakistan’s position on closer defence cooperation, sales of armaments as it also recognised Pakistan’s great sacrifices in the war on terror.
This happened after Ali Jehangir Siddiqui met this group and advocated for Pakistan’s success in fighting terror and asked for recognising Pakistan’s sacrifices in war against terror.
The Indian newspaper Economic Times, published an article on Sept 4, 2018, interestingly timed the day before the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Dunford arrived in Pakistan for meetings with the Pakistani government before going to New Delhi.
Titled ‘Why is the President of a Jewish group defending Pakistani’ the article was scathing in its criticism on Pakistan writing “…while it (Pakistan) has no real well-wishers left in the US Congress or the Pentagon, and these days even the State Department struggles mightily to whitewash its crimes.”
“US Secretary of State Pompeo is expected to deliver, what the deeply concerned Indian newspaper critically described as “a tough message to Pakistan during his brief stopover (to Pakistan) before arriving in India later in the day.”
