Chaudhry Nisar demands audit of aid provided by US

SLAMABAD (web desk) – Former Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar on Wednesday has demanded complete audit of aid provided by United States of America (USA) to Pakistan in past 10 years.

Talking to a joint meeting of National Assembly in Islamabad, Chaudhry Nisar said that this session should have been summoned few days ago. He said NA, Senate are not only for speeches but also for guidance as they help in making the country strong.

He said government should take advantage of our unanimity, adding that Pakistan is facing many challenges and that the nation is divided over the issues of political, provincial, accountability and census.

Parliament should give befitting response to international community over the US president Donald Trump’s allegations against Pakistan of harboring terrorists, he added.

Chaudhry Nisar said that Trump’s statement was not only disappointing but insulting. He said image of Pakistan was portrayed negative by enemies, so-called alliance countries and our own acts.

He said that we sold country’s honor and sovereignty over few dollars, continuing that Pakistan is not responsible for US’s failure in Afghanistan as it didn’t ask us before invading Afghanistan.

US also wants negotiation with Taliban but when Pakistan suggests the same, it is considered as biggest sin, he stated.

Former interior minister said that we need to fight these accusations with facts and seriousness. He said terrorists from Afghanistan are responsible for attacks in Pakistan and that if there are hideouts of militants in our country, then proofs should be presented.

Every one baselessly says we gave billions of dollars to Pakistan, he expressed.

Chaudhry Nisar said such matters come under Foreign Ministry and it should resolve them. He said Trump acknowledged India for positive role in Afghanistan, which is shameful. Prepare joint strategy on the issue and stick to it, he demanded.

He reiterated to use the friendship of China, Russia and Turkey and that do not ignore the trusted friend Iran.
