It is time Pakistan must thank America for whatever it has done so far: Khurshid.

By Islamabad, May 28, 2011 (Frontier Star): Naib Amir of Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Senator Prof. Khurshid Ahmad has warned the Government that it must implement the resolution of the Parliament in letter and spirit and refuse to submit to the pressures that are being put upon them by Admiral Mullen and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to Senator Khurshid it is a horrifying situation that on the one hand America is violating our sovereignty and strangulating our economy and on the other hand the Pakistan's political and military leadership seems to be surrendering to American pressure and blackmail. "It is a sad commentary that ramscenes of United State's Helicopter have been handed over to America and now CIA is being given access to the place allegedly used by Usama Bin Ladin", he pointed out. "It is time Pakistan must thank America for whatever it has done so far, refuse to take economic and military aid and redesign its relationship with America to protect its own sovereignty, honour and strategic interests and to ensure peaceful political settlement in Afghanistan for the safety of the region", he emphasized. "Time has come to tell frankly to America that Pakistani nation is not prepared to continue the client-status and would like to remain friend without surrendering to American demands and tolerating its intervention and manipulations", he concluded.
