Islamabad: Islamabad is set to take up with Washington the issue of the United States’ discriminatory attitude towards Pakistan against India, official sources said. “The tilt is showing and this is not acceptable to Pakistan. The diplomatic channels will be used to convince Washington to stay even with Islamabad and New Delhi,” a senior official at the foreign ministry said.
“Asking us to do more against terror on Indian incitation, cementing defence ties and supporting India for the UNSC permanent seat is something we are worried about. We will take up this issue at the diplomatic-level and of course Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will discuss this when he meets President Barack Obama next month,” added the official in Pakistan.
India is set to purchase Apache and Chinook helicopters from the US at a cost of around $2.5 billion. The US has pledged to support India for a permanent seat in the UNSC.
