US blames Pakistan for its failure in Afghanistan: Defence minister


Brussels, Jan. 27 (TNS): Hitting back at American President’s remarks, Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir said the United States is blaming Pakistan for its failure to achieve success in Afghanistan even after sixteen years.

In an interview with Belgium’s National TV and Radio in Brussels, he said a lot of blame game has come to Pakistan and that is one of the reasons, we are fencing the whole 2600 kilometers border with Afghanistan.

To a question on Pak- US relations, the minister said we expect the Europeans to convey our point of view to Washington who are at the moment not very receptive to Pakistan’s point of view.
