Washington emboldened India, says Pakistan Ambassador at US

WASHINGTON: Pakistan’s ambassador to Washington, Asad Majeed Khan has said that the United States has not condemned India’s air incursion and adding that the US stance “emboldened” New Delhi.

He said this on Wednesday while talking to international news agency. Pakistani envoy said that the United States should have pinned blame on India.

Ambassador added that it is construed and understood as an endorsement of the Indian position and that is what emboldened them even more.

He added that escalation between the neighbouring countries had greatly increased and adding that Pakistan was eager for greater US diplomacy between Islamabad and New Delhi.

“There is perhaps no other country better placed than the United States to be able to play some role,” he said, pointing to the US relationship with both countries.

He said Pakistan wanted to hold talks with India.

“Prime Minister Imran Khan has ordered the armed forces to counter the Indian forces’ aggression,” he said.
