Lahore - Defence analyst Major Gen (r) Javed has said the 65-year-old Pak-US friendship has not only “cost Pakistan’s bifurcation but also funded terrorism.

“On one hand, the US unleashes attacks on our sovereignty while it harps on do-more mantra on the other,” he said at Waqt News programme Insight yesterday with The Nation Editor Salim Bokhari.

He also took a swipe at the rulers for their failure to meet challenges confronting the country.

“The foreign policy does not serve our national interest and poor foreign policy is pushing us to the wall,” he said, adding that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s diplomatic efforts are leaving Pakistan in an alley.

He slammed Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz for his failure in representing Pakistan at the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) meeting.

He said the civil leadership’s wrong policies were also spoiling the military’s achievements.

PJ Mir stressed that Washington left Islamabad in lurch by refusing to send naval warships when Pakistan was being bifurcated in 1971.

He said Pakistan should keep its act together rather than relying on the US as it is time-tested fact that the Americans are not our friends but we try to befriend with them.

Analyst Salman Ghani said the US tilted towards India as both felt threatened by the Sino-Pak friendship.

He said Indian diplomatic policy is better than that of Pakistan.

“We were helpless in cases of Shakil Afridi and Raymond Davis” he said, adding that the US had a history of ditching Pakistan.

He stressed the need for highlighting Indians negative role in Afghanistan at all the major world forms and added that Delhi’s activities in Kabul are the major reason for terrorism in Afghanistan.
