PM House, not FO running foreign affairs, Sherry  

Islamabad, December 2, 2016: Vice President PPPP and former Ambassador to the US, Senator Sherry Rehman expressed shock and dismay over the government’s bizarre release of a readout of the phone call between President-elect Donald Trump and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

The phone call between the two leaders took place on Wednesday to discuss future prospects between the US and Pakistan.

 

The former Ambassador said, “Releasing that unabridged readout without permission represented a total breach of diplomatic norms and has placed Pakistan in a poor light”. 

 

The government’s decision to release the readout in the manner that it did, drew a slew of criticism from former White House officials and the international media. 

 

“There is no way that a trained Foreign Service Officer would release this kind of granular detail on their own, they are way too experienced for that. This huge faux pas has obviously been initiated by the PM’s office,” said Rehman. 

 

The President-elect and the Prime Minister also received heavy backlash over the ignorance and recklessness revealed in the content of the readout. Foreign policy experts fear that it would have strong implications on US policy towards India and Pakistan. 

 

“This has exposed the gaping hole in this government’s foreign policy machine and made it look even more enormous. The refusal to appoint a full time Foreign Minister has left a dangerous vacuum on a key ministry where too much is falling between the cracks. This has been one of the PPP’s key demands in order to protect Pakistan’s interests, but we fail to understand why no one is given this full time responsibility, especially considering the daily challenges Pakistan is facing in this vital ministry,” concluded the Senator.

LAHORE, December 2: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto has warned Nawaz government that he would change his current slogan of “Go Nisar Go” into “Go Nawaz Go” if his four demands were not accepted before December 27. “I am fed up with what is happening. NAP has failed and Takht-e-Raiwind was not ready even to talk against terrorism leave aside fighting against terrorism,” PPP Chairman stated in his speech at the PPP’s Foundation Week celebrations organized by PPP South Punjab. Many thousands Jiyalas coming from different parts of South Punjab who raised full-throated slogans to welcome Chairman Bilawal Bhutto to the stage amid cultural tunes from Cholistan and other parts of Wasaib.

He said that NAB was made into Noon-league Action Plan, which ended up as Nakaam-league Action Plan. “I am grand-son of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, son of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and don’t forget that I am nephew of Shaheed Mir Murtaza Bhutto and Shaheed Shahnawaz Bhutto also,” said the PPP Chairman.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari repeated PPP’s four demands which include Parliamentary scrutiny of the security policy, democratic, investigations into the massive Panama Scandal through the legislation proposed by PPP together with other political parties, implementation of resolution about CPEC passed unanimously by an All Parties Conference presided over by former President Asif Ali Zardari and a democratic accountability of foreign policy and Foreign Minister.

He lashed out at the Nawaz League for spending the funding from the world for Balochistan, KPK and Sindh on Orange Line. “These funds should be spent on health, education and eliminating poverty not on lavish facilities,” he added.

PPP Chairman said that Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto laid down her life fighting the terrorists but Takht-e-Raiwind and its cronies are not even talking against terrorists instead of fighting. He said “Go Nisar Go” slogan is being raised from Takht-e-Lahore instead of Sindh, Balochistan, South Waziristan or elsewhere.

 

Bilawal Bhutto warned that “Go Nisar Go” will change into “Go Nawaz Go” if all the four demands were not accepted before December 27, the martyrdom day of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.
