NEW YORK - President Asif Ali Zardari has said that he is disenchanted with Indias stance towards Pakistan and raised the question who is financing the Afghan Taliban and the Pakistani Taliban. In an interview with Newsweek, he said We havent got any closer to knowing that. The President said that his government was stable and faced no threat. I expected the largest democracy in the world to behave much more maturely, the President said, referring to India as he responded to a question about progress on Pakistans request for extradition of Ajmal Kasab, the sole surviving gunman from the 2008 Mumbai attacks. This new-age terror has created a phenomenon where a few people can take entire states to war, he went on to say. The fact that these people happen to belong to Pakistan or India or Bangladesh is immaterial. They are non-state actors and the states should behave like states. Since President Zardari has consistently taken a soft line on India, his criticism of the Indian policy led the Newsweek correspondent to ask him whether he had become a hawk on Pakistans eastern neighbour. Im a liberal by nature and democrat by principles. War is never an option, as far as Im concerned. Zardari voiced full confidence in the stability of Pakistans present democratic set-up, saying neither the government nor the Parliament was in any danger. The 18th Amendment [to the Constitution] is a reflection of the great maturity, I feel, democratic forces in Pakistan have achieved, he said when asked whether the government was in danger of falling. I think all the political forces sitting today in Parliament have reinvented ourselves. President Zardari said that US-Pakistan cooperation was satisfactory. There was no US pressure on Pakistan against pursuing economic relations with Iran. We are looking forward to trading with all our neighbours. Nobody can put pressure on Pakistan for anything. We do what is in Pakistans interest, he added. On calls for military action in North Waziristan, the President said Pakistan would follow its own game plan. We are fighting to save Pakistan, he added. About Faisal Shahzad, the suspect in the failed Times Square bombing, he underlined the fact that the Pakistan-born man was a US citizen. There is no cure for badness. But the cooperation with the US is good. About his diplomatic successes, Zardari said, I think weve created an appetite in the world to look at the case of Pakistan from our eyes. Hence the locally evolved IMF package extended aid to Pakistan, and new strategic dialogue with the US made possible. It is because weve managed to, I think, have these diplomatic successes. Weve created a new vision of Pakistan as far as other countries are concerned. But, he said, the press still remained cynical.
