Express October 29, 2011

Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said that the US demand from Pakistan to “do more” in the fight against terrorism is against ground realities, Express 24/7 reported Saturday.

She said this during her address at the University of Western Australia.

Khar said that Pakistan was the biggest sufferer in the war against terrorism and that the demand to do more could not be justified.

She told the audience that Pakistan wants to see a stable and prosperous Afghanistan, which is in the interest of both the countries.

The foreign minister also said that Islamabad wants sustainable relations with all its neighbours, including India.

Speaking about relations with New Delhi, Khar said that Islamabad wishes to resolve all issues through talks, including the long-standing Kashmir Issue.

Khar is accompanying Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani at the second Executive Session of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), which was officially inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II at the Perth Exhibition and Convention Centre.

What do you mean by ground realities . The reality is well exposed before the world when Taliban and their supporters attepted to ca'ture power through arm attake from Lal Masjid and their dream has been smashed throgh RED star operation . Now you have to do more . Any attempt to protect the streategic asset is going to be counter productive . There is no other option before you now and for that sake you have to change your on the Kasmir issue .

@Salman: Then have them stop talking big beyond their means and let someone do the job that actually can. Pakistan has only been sacrificing lives and dignity for pride when this could have been done and over with some time back. By talking big I mean it's awfully funny how people on here are so cocky about taking on the US yet a few militant groups make them cower. They just know that the civilian killings are a load of crap and the US is not actually a threat to the innocent.
