Imran Khan rejects Pak parliament's new recommendations on re- engagement with US

Islamabad , Sat, 14 Apr 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Apr 15(ANI): The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) has rejected new recommendations passed by the Pakistan parliament on re-engagement with the US and called on the government to review its decision.

"Of what benefit will this resolution be to the people of Pakistan who have seen over 40,000 of their fellow citizens dead in this US-led 'war on terror' as well as faced the loss of $50b in the last four years and seen Foreign Direct Investment dry up?" The Express Tribune quoted Imran, as saying.

Khan also asked about the fate of the "give peace a chance" principle, which was the central part of the All Parties Conference's (APC) Resolution passed unanimously by all political parties of the country.

He reiterated that this new resolution was merely a continuation of making Pakistan play a mercenary role for the US and claimed the money would be amassed by few and would be of no benefit to the country.

"The farce of reviving the Nato supply route for non-lethal goods will sustain the US war in Afghanistan as all Nato supplies are for their military's sustenance and war effort against Afghanistan... PTI would not accept any restoration of Nato supply routes through the country as any supply going to Nato forces keeps the war prolonged as it supports the war effort. It is not simply a matter of money. It is a matter of extricating Pakistan from this war which is not Pakistan's war at all and which has aggravated terrorism in Pakistan," a PTI statement said.

Khan also pointed out the "shameful" manner in which the resolution asked the US to review its drone policy rather than stating that Pakistan will not accept any attack on its territory.

He also regretted the parliament was legitimizing the Musharraf era by destabilizing Pakistan-US ties rather re- structuring the nature of the relationship. (ANI)
