MMA submits motion on foreign policies
ISLAMABAD: The Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) on Thursday submitted an adjournment motion to the National Assembly secretariat demanding a debate on the government’s foreign policies.
The adjournment motion said that the Iraqi election held under the supervision of the US proved that it (US) could stage a drama of democracy even during a war which was worst than the dictatorship of Saddam Hussain, former Iraqi president. It said circumstances had proved that the US attacked on the country to take control of Iraq’s oil resources and to strengthen Israel. “Now the US is not ready to give a time frame for calling its troops back from Iraq,” the motion added.
As a Non-North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) ally it was Pakistan’s responsibility to pressurise the US to leave Iraq and Afghanistan and to not attack Iran. Pakistan should also play its role for summoning the Islamic Conference to pressurise the US, the motion added. The motion said it was an important issue which should be debated in the lower house of the parliament.
