The United States is using India to counter emerging economy of China

Lt Gen (Retd) Naeem Khalid Lodhi (Defense Analyst): Pakistan has always worked for peace and prosperity in the region. India and United States are the strategic partners and United States is using India to counter Chinese emerging economy. It is the need of the time that Pakistan must also review its foreign policy. While Pakistan has played a vital role in convincing Afghan Taliban to come on negotiating table with United States, yet the American accusation on Pakistan is completely unfair. Pakistan's efforts in this regard has also been acknowledged by the world. The anti-Islam elements are taking the advantages of non-unity of the Muslim world. United States has also acknowledged the contribution of Pakistan against terrorism. Pakistan needs to respond the joint Indo-US statement in an effective way. The recent joint statement indicates the pro-active foreign policy of India and if Pakistan does not respond it then it may lead to increased US pressure on Pakistan. The organizations indicated in the statement have already been banned by Pakistan.
