Islamabad, Apr 8 (ANI): Pakistan's Science and Technology Minister Azam Khan Swati has said that US policies aim to dismantle Pakistan, neutralise Iran and contain China to make India a regional superpower to achieve her objectives.
He further said that NATO's presence in the region was a great threat to the very existence of Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and Iran as well.
"American policies are not of a friend but of a foe and Richard Holbrooke and Mike Mullen are in Pakistan to put a price on our loyalty to our religion and the Islamic State of Pakistan but we are not a saleable commodity," Swati said.
Commenting on the recent visit of the US military and political leadership to Pakistan, he said Obama's Administration was following the conspiracy hatched by then President George W Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfield and would lead America towards destruction.
Swati added the US policy aimed to destroy Pakistani Armed Forces, marginalise state-of-the-art security agency, ISI, and ruin Pakistan.
"To achieve its objectives, Americans are spreading hatred in the mind and heart of the people of world by portraying Islamists as cruel, inhuman and threat to humanity, and are trying to divide Pakistani nation on religious basis," he said.
Swati added that the people of Pakistan would foil their nefarious designs, as the people of NWFP and FATA were peaceloving and practical Muslims and would never succumb to the pressure of foreign forces.
"Let's not sell our country and destroy ourselves for 10 billion dollars or any other amount because peace in country is priceless," he suggested the Minister.
Swati said it was a matter of concern for each and every Pakistani to figure out the price of peace that the country had lost in Swat, Malakand and Fata. (ANI)
