Islamabad, Dec. 14 (ANI): In the wake of arrest of five terror-accused US nationals in Pakistan, the PML-Q has alleged that the United States is deliberately "exporting terrorism" to Pakistan.

"There is major contradiction in the statements of US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the transgression of US citizens in Pakistan. If the US does not wish to act as a patron, then it has no business exporting terrorism to Pakistan in the form of US nationals recently caught in Pakistan planning terror attacks along with Al Qaeda," The Daily Times quoted PML-Q parliamentarian Marvi Memon, as saying.

She demanded the Pakistan Government provide parliament with complete details of the 9,236 visas issued by Pakistan to US nationals during the last four months.

"It was clear from the behaviour of the US nationals that they imagined themselves as colonialists. The Kerry Lugar law has legalised US colonialism in Pakistan," she said.

The arrests of five men, she said, proved that some of the US nationals were risk to national security, and the government should take action against them.

Referring to an article in Vanity Fair magazine on Blackwater's presence in Pakistan, Memon said that Interior Minister Rehman Malik owed an apology to the nation, if not his promised resignation. (ANI)
