News Story: Abbasi’s Remarks On Afghan-Indian Ties ‘Foolish’

By Massoud Ansar

A number of senators on Sunday sharply criticized Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for his remarks on Afghan-Indian relations and such his utterances were in fact an interference in Afghanistan’s internal affairs. 

Head of the senate Fazlulhadi Muslimyar labeled the remarks ‘foolish’ and said Pakistan politicians do not have independence and they are the loud-speakers of Pakistan’s military. 

Abbasi last week said at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York city that Islamabad did not have any problems with New Delhi’s financial support to Afghanistan, but that it would never condone India’s political or military role in Afghanistan.

“We denounce Pakistan's Prime Minister’s remarks. Along with the condemnation, I must say it is very rude and foolish,” said Muslimyar.

“Pakistan Prime Minister has no logic, he may suffer nervous or mental problems,” senator Nisar Haris said.

A number of senators said Afghanistan is an independent country and can have relations with any country in the world.
