‘PkMAP opposes foreign wanted men, airbases’
PESHAWAR: Chief of Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) Mahmood Khan Achakzai on Sunday said his party was against the presence of “foreign wanted people and foreign airbases” in Pakistan.
Talking to reporters he said criminals wanted in other countries should not be patronized, as it would endanger Pakistan’s security.
Mr Achakzai criticised Pakistan’s foreign policy and warned the government to refrain from further interference in Afghanistan. He said the government should instead help rebuild the war-torn county.
He said the regional situation was “sensitive” and the US presence in the area was worrying all countries including Iran, China, Uzbekistan and India.
Mr Achakzai said his party was ready for a wider Pashtoon alliance provided the other parties were anti-imperialist, anti-feudal and democratic. He said his party was ready to join religious forces on issues like the Legal Framework Order (LFO). “If they decide to quit parliament in protest against the controversial LFO, we are prepared for that as well,” he said.
He said his party did not accept the IRSA water accord due to unfair water distribution.
