Pak-US Ties No Longer Hyphenated With India: Bilawal
WASHINGTON, CA (IANS) – Pakistan Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that Pakistan-US ties are no longer hyphenated with Afghanistan and India as Washington and Islamabad are discussing ways to enhance trade and economic cooperation between the two countries.
“Not only I am presently surprised, but I am absolutely impressed by the new foreign policy approach of the US towards Pakistan,” said Bilawal while responding to a question related to Pakistan-US ties at the Wilson Centre here.
“There is also an increased feeling in our [Pak-US] interaction that we are no longer hyphenated as Af-Pak or Pak-India. Only Pak-US that’s a good thing,” he said.
Bilawal said Pakistan and US have for a long time seen each other through the prism of Afghanistan.
