WASHINGTON (APP) - Pakistan's Ambassador to the United States Hussain Haqqani has said that the international community must help Pakistan morally, politically and economically to successfully eradicate terrorism, which is a global threat. He was addressing three different groups of students and faculty members at the prestigious Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. Pakistan, the Envoy said, stood at the threshold of a "transformational moment". This "transformation involves moving from authoritarianism to democracy, from militancy to economic prosperity and from narrowly defined ideologies to pluralism". Answering questions from Pakistani students, Haqqani said there was a complete identity of views between the elected civilian leadership led by President Zardari and Prime Minister Gilani and the military under the command of Chief of Army Staff Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani. "All institutions in Pakistan have now realised that the strength of Pakistan lies in strengthening Pakistan's constitutional foundations. No individual and group alone can ensure the security and integrity of Pakistan", he stated. In his address to the Yale South Asian Studies Council, the Ambassador said Pakistan's elected leadership seeks close cooperation from Afghanistan in ensuring that the Pak-Afghan border becomes secure. "This marks significant progress from the era when the two countries constantly played a blame game instead of working together in ensuring that Al-Qaeda and the Taliban no longer pose a threat to Pakistan, Afghanistan and the rest of the world", he remarked. Haqqani said the Pakistanis continue to believe strongly in the justice of their case on Jammu and Kashmir. "But Pakistan will continue to engage with India so that the relationship between our countries moves from an adversarial one to one of cooperation that benefits both nations economically and, particularly, in the sphere of trade". Speaking on the US-Pakistan ties he said, the US understands the importance of respecting Pakistan's sovereignty and Pakistanis will not allow enemies like Al-Qaeda or friends such as the US to violate Pakistani sovereignty. Despite recent harsh pronouncements from politicians in both the countries, Haqqani described the US-Pakistan relationship as strong and stable. "We both need each other", he said and added "we will resolve any disagreements as disagreements between friends". He said the vast majority of Pakistanis recognise terrorism as a threat to Pakistan's existence and also realise that friendship with the US is in Pakistan's interest. Haqqani also spoke as the Guest of Honour at a dinner hosted by the Yale World Fellows Programme. He outlined the vision for Pakistan as enunciated by Shaheed Mohtarama Benazir Bhutto and Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari. "This vision involves investing in Pakistan's people so that our school enrolment goes up from 52% of school-going age children to 100%," he said. On the economic side, he said, Pakistan needs to become the hub of trade between the Middle East, Central Asia and South Asia and an important port of entry into the massive markets of China and India.  "In an era of globalisation, Pakistan cannot be isolated from the forces of globalisation and large number of Pakistanis living abroad would be expected to play their roles as intermediaries between the world and our traditional culture," he observed.
