Former foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that no doubt Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has clear inclination but nothing in her hands to come up with foreign affairs and presidency is playing an important role in foreign policy.
In an interview with a private TV channel, he said that the government should take advantage of the visit of military officials and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for national interest and openly present their viewpoint before them.
He said that US is confused at the moment, on one hand US want to progress the reconciliation process in Afghanistan and on the other hand it want to continue military operation in Afghanistan, adding that both of the options cannot run at a same time.
He said that Pakistan and US both wants to see peace in Afghanistan but US should take Pakistan into confidence about the condition after the withdrawal of NATO and allied forces and remove the reservations of Pakistan.
He said that Pakistan should clearly convey its message to the current US delegation if Pakistan would not be taken into confidence regarding the situation of withdrawal of allied forces then Pakistan would face difficulties in the coming Bern and Istanbul conferences.
He said that statement of Pakistan regarding the aid is very dangerous that it will continue the civilian aid and stop the military aid.
He said that Prime Minister also has no role in the foreign policy and often the foreign office is also frequently bypassed during the foreign policy.
