Former ambassador to the US Hussain Haqqani said on Thursday that any advantages Pakistan might gain from the Nato supply routes will not last forever.
“They (US) need Pakistan to withdraw with their heavy equipment (from Afghanistan). But in a worst case scenario, they can just blow it up and get out through other means,” he told CNN in an interview. Haqqani also lamented the direction of Pakistan’s current foreign policy.
“There are elements in Pakistani society who don’t allow honest and realistic debate about our foreign policy… (They) just want to blame our neighbours, our enemies.”
