LAHORE: Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique remarked that Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif has given a befitting reply to the US policymakers.

In a series of posts on social media on Friday, he wrote that Asif?s statements made the US aware of the realities of what was happening inside their territory.

He added that American policies have played an integral role in encouraging activities of militants.

US authorities who ask others to 'do more' are responsible for spreading much chaos across the world, he remarked.

He claimed that it would be wrong to not acknowledge the sacrifices of the nation and Pakistan?s security institutions.

Railways minister, while criticising political opponent Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, remarked that PTI has the audacity to call others traitors when it is itself thriving on foreign funding.

He also mentioned that PTI Chairperson Imran Khan's terms with Jewish lobby are no secret.

He added, that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz serves as the ideological line of defence of Pakistan. 

Hafiz Saeed, Haqqanis are liabilities for Pakistan: Asif

NEW YORK: Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Wednesday has said that Hafiz Saeed, Lashkar-e-Taiba, and the Haqqani network are a liabilities for Pakistan.

The foreign minister was speaking at a session hosted by Asia Society in New York.

"It is very easy to say that Pakistan is supporting Haqqanis and Hafiz Saeed and Lashkar-e-Taiba. They are liabilities, I accept that they are liabilities. But give us time to get rid of these liabilities. You are increasing our liabilities further," said Asif.

"Don't blame us for Haqqanis, don't blame us for Hafiz Saeeds. These were the people who were your darlings....20 or 30 years back. They were being dined and wined in the White House," added the foreign minister.

"You cannot divorce history from the present or the future."

On a question regarding Hafiz Saeed, Asif said that he was already under detention.

"You have mentioned a name. It's a proscribed organisation. The gentleman is under house arrest. But I agree with you that on that score, on that account, we have to do more," he said.
