US must not ignore Pakistan, stresses Musharraf
The United States should not ignore Pakistan in era of radicalization of societies around the world, former president of Pakistan, General (r) Pervez Musharraf has said.
Addressing the South Asia Rising 2017 conference in Dubai the other day, Musharraf said that Pakistan could play a crucial role in eradicating terrorism. He added that it was wrong to accuse Pakistan of supporting terrorism.
“Pakistan was asked by the US and Western world to introduce ‘Jihad’ and impart training to ‘Mujahideen’ in 80s and to the ‘Taliban’ during 90s. Why is only Pakistan being blamed now for militancy problems,” he said.
The former president said that the US coalition forces in Afghanistan had defeated Al Qaeda and Taliban, but unfortunately the military victory could not be transformed into political victory in Afghanistan resulting in a resurgence of militancy in the region.
Musharraf criticized Indian interference in Pakistan and warned that South Asia would not rise economically if the region, especially Pakistan and India, did not move forward to resolve their outstanding issues. Referring to India’s refusal to participate in the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) summit that was scheduled to be held in Pakistan in November 2016, Pervez Musharraf said that politicisation of SAARC was regrettable.
