A very apt comment from Gen. R D Bhatti (Retd), former ambassador to North Korea, on the New Year outburst of President Trump against Pakistan. 

“Friendship between Pakistan and United States is spread over seven decades. The latest remarks of President Trump against Pakistan are direct condemnation of the past leadership of the United States who had cultivated and maintained a mutually beneficial friendship between the two countries. One hopes that the enlightened 

American people would not allow their history to be blemished that way. Pakistan Army is a professional army and President Trump is advised to look for mercenaries elsewhere.”
