Minister for Foreign Affairs Khawaja Asif on Wednesday addressed the United States government, saying it should not blame Pakistan for its failure.
“We are upset that you are not pleased [with us], but we will not compromise on our honour,” the minister said.
He said the past of Pakistan suggests the country should be careful of trusting the United States.
In his series of tweets, the foreign minister also stated that Pakistan has been cleaning the mess of decades for the past four years.
“Our army is fighting a major war – a never-ending tale of sacrifice.”
Asif’s response has come following a tweet by US President Donald Trump that triggered widespread response. As per the US president, they regretted giving aid to Pakistan for the past 15 years, only to get “lies and deceit” in return.
Earlier on Wednesday, Asif briefed a meeting of the federal cabinet on the future political discourse in relation to Trump’s allegations.
The national, as well as regional security situation, economic and social affairs, were also a part of the meeting’s agenda.
