BRUSSELS - Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir says the United States is blaming Pakistan for its own failures in Afghanistan over the past sixteen years.
In an interview with Belgium's National TV and Radio in Brussels, he said Pakistan is fencing its 2600 kilometers long border with Afghanistan to get rid of the blame game.
He said Pakistan will face unrest as long as the situation is unstable in Afghanistan.
Khurram Dastgir said we expect the Europeans to convey our point of view to the Americans who are at the moment not very receptive to Pakistan.
He said internal security situation in Pakistan has greatly improved and the country is the fastest growing consumer market in the world at the moment.
He said there is a lot of interest from international retailers, food outlets, and companies who want to tap Pakistan's consumer market.
