Pakistan’s Ambassador to United States (US) Sherry Rehman has said that US understands that all the major decisions on internal and external issues are now being taken in the Parliament.
She claimed that sitting Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) government has strengthened its relations with other countries including Russia.
Sherry said that Pakistan is the main stakeholder for maintaining peace in the region and Pakistan’s stance on Afghanistan issue is clear that stability in Pakistan is related to stability in Afghanistan.
She said that it is necessary to be realised in the US that Pakistan was against the extremism and terrorism and fighting against terrorism in accordance with its agenda, resources and capacity.
Responding to a question regarding ‘Malala incident’, Sherry said that the attack united the entire nation, adding that “we should change the thoughts of public through education; just military operation could not resolve the problem.”
She said that the entire nation condemned this un-Islamic act.
The Pakistan’s Ambassador to US said that terrorists were minority in Pakistan and want to impose their thoughts in the country through bullet but all political parties and public of the country are united to overcome this national challenge.
To a yet another question, she said that “if the daughters of Pakistan are targeted for just to raise the voice for education then how we can not own this war against terror.”
Sherry said that Pakistan sacrifices a lot as a frontline state in war against terror. She said that mainstream society and government have same view that terrorism and extremism in the name of Islam should be condemned.
