Islamabad: A Pakistani Senator on Wednesday said Islamabad was being gradually isolated on an international level.
Farhatullah Babar was addressing a full house committee session of the Senate where he said new guidelines should be formulated for smoother relations between the civil and military leaderships, Geo TV reported.
“If the institutions aren`t on the same page then how would you implement guidelines for relations with other countries,” he wondered.
Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani, expressing concern over strained US-Pakistan ties, said that in recent times the demand to “do more” has amplified. He also pointed towards the difficulty that Pakistan recently faced while negotiating over the purchase of F-16 fighter jets from Washington.
He said the statements given by the US Congressmen have been against the country`s sovereignty, national security, and national interest.
A few days ago, some US lawmakers had sought additional measures against Pakistan alleging that the country has failed to take action against terrorist groups.
A four-member, bipartisan US Senate delegation, led by US senator John McCain, visited Pakistan earlier this month in a bid to normalise relations between the two countries.
