Rawalpindi, May 27 (ANI): Former Pakistan army officials have said participating in the NATO summit in Chicago was a mistake, as the outcome was disappointing, where Pakistan was treated as an accused.
According to the Pakistan Ex-servicemen Association (PESA), the foreign office should have advised President Asif Ali Zardari against attending the summit, as U.S. President Barack Obama and leaders of other NATO countries could not allot time for formal meetings with him, reports the Daily Times.
They said Pakistan has served U.S. interests for over six decades, but our sacrifices and contributions have been totally forgotten and it was evident from the anti-Pakistan attitude of the U.S. Congress.
NATO containers have been taking free rides for the past 11 years causing damage worth billions to infrastructure. Now our demand to charge them is termed as extortion, which proves that bilateral relations have reached their lowest ebb, they added.
Nuclear Pakistan is considered a hurdle in the scheme, therefore the U.S. has decided to destroy its economy and the army, they further said.
They further accused the U.S. of supporting separatist movements in Pakistan, calling it a strategy aimed at balkanisation of the country. (ANI)
