Pak FM Khar won't accept India's supremacy in S.Asia, but aiming for peace with neighbours
Lahore, July 25 (ANI): Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has said that her country will not accept India's supremacy in the region, but will work for the promotion of peace with all neighbours.
"Pakistan will not accept India's supremacy in the region. Through the pursuance of an effective foreign policy, we will maintain [our] strategic importance in the region," she told reporters at the Lahore airport upon her return from Bali, Indonesia where she represented Pakistan at the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit.
When asked about US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's statement during her India visit, she said that the US might want India to play a greater role, but the reality is a lot different.
"Pakistan's stance is clear. Prime Minister Gilani has said that if the US recognises India's role then it also recognises Pakistan's," Express Tribune quoted her, as saying.
She urged that the American statement must be taken with a pragmatic approach.
"Pakistan is a strategically-important country and no one, including the US, China or even India, want to play down its role. Thus, we should remain positive," Khar said. (ANI)
