Pak concern over growing Indo-US ties

By The Assam Tribune

ISLAMABAD, June 9 - Pakistan today expressed concern over the growing strategic ties between India and the US and accused that Washington approaches Islamabad whenever it needs it and abandons it when it does not.

�Pakistan will convey its concerns to the US over the latest issues in the bilateral ties,� Pakistan Prime Minister�s Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said, adding a high-level meeting is planned here between the two nations tomorrow.

His comments came a day after the two countries signed a number of agreements for security cooperation during Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s visit to the US.

Pakistan is also upset that President Barack Obama has backed India�s bid for membership in the Nuclear Suppliers Group. �We firmly conveyed it to the US that maintaining effective nuclear deterrence is critical for Pakistan�s security and only Pakistan itself can determine how it should respond to growing strategic imbalance in South Asia,� Aziz said. � PTI
