WASHINGTON: Ahead of the Bush-Musharraf-Karzai trilateral meeting, Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has slammed his Afghanistan counterpart for "purposely turning a blind eye" to so-called alienation in his country."
"He is not oblivious. He knows everything. But he's purposely denying, turning a blind eye, like an ostrich. He doesn't want to tell the world what is the facts, for his own personal reasons.
"This is what I think.... In the government in Afghanistan, there is a certain community which is feeling alienated. And this community has 50 to 60 per cent representation of Afghanistan. And that is his problem. He has to balance out. And he is not being able to do that.And, therefore, he is trying to hide that everything is happening from Pakistan", Musharraf told CNN on Tuesday.
"If he keeps going wrong, I have been telling the world since three months, we are delaying. We are getting late. All this that I read is what is happening in Afghanistan in all the provinces. This is a movement going on. This is a Pashtun uprising by the people going on."
"If he doesn't understand this, he will keep going on, and we are going to lose in Afghanistan" he claimed. Musharraf stressed that Pakistan and Afghanistan should not be compared in the strategies on the war on terror saying that Islamabad is quite capable to conduct operations on its own in the hunt for Osama bin Laden and the al-Qaida leaders and that there are enough weapons at the disposal of Pakistan to see this through. "Sovereignty is a sensitive issue in Pakistan"
