Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on Tuesday claimed in the National Assembly that a former Pakistani ambassador to the United States is ‘lobbying against his own country’ and ‘creating hurdles for the government’.
“A former Pakistani ambassador is working against his own country in the US,” Aziz said, adding that Pakistan’s diplomatic mission in the US is facing challenges due to the former ambassador’s campaign.
“This person is trying to tackle all our diplomatic efforts in boosting the bilateral ties between Pakistan and the United States,” Aziz said.
Without revealing the identity of the person, the adviser said, “The Foreign Office has serious reservation on the activities of the said person in the US.”
Aziz also said that Pakistan is ‘making successful efforts’ against India’s Nuclear Suppliers Group membership. -INP
