Islamabad, Mar 21 (ANI): The Pakistan parliamentary committee has presented proposals regarding relations with the United States, which among many points demanded that at least 50 percent of NATO containers travelling through Pakistan be handled through Pakistan Railways.
In fact, the proposals are not just US-centric, but talk about foreign policy in general.
It also recommended that Islamabad should actively pursue the gas pipeline project with Iran to meet its growing energy requirements, while the dialogue process with India be continued in a purposeful and result-oriented manner.
The strategic partnership with China should be deepened and relations with Russia strengthened, the 40-point proposals added. he panel's report emphasises that Pakistan's nuclear programme and assets, including its safety and security, cannot be compromised.
"The US-Indo civil nuclear agreement has significantly altered the strategic balance in the region; therefore, Pakistan should seek from the US and others a similar treatment."
The recommendations further say that Pakistan should demand an unconditional apology from the US for the November 26 NATO aerial attack on the Salala check post last year. It added that Washington should put a stop to drone strikes in tribal areas.
The proposals were introduced by the chairman of the parliamentary committee on national security, Senator Raza Rabbani.
"If supplies to foreign forces resume in light of these recommendations, Islamabad can earn billions of rupees per day by imposing additional levied on foreign forces supply," he said. (ANI)
