Lahore, Mar. 22 (ANI): PPP leader Syeda Abida Hussain has said that Pakistani armed forces are way too inferior to their US counterparts despite their unaffordably large size.
The Daily Times quoted Hussain, as saying that while Pakistani armed forces were similar in size to their US counterparts, Americans are more sovereign and advanced.
While delivering a lecture on 'Pakistan's internal and external threats,' the former Pakistani ambassador to Washington said that the US-Pak strategic dialogue is a good opportunity for Islamabad to get its 30-billion-dollar aid delivered from the US.
Hussain claimed that Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari is being regarded as the bjte noire of the country despite causing no harm to the country during his two-year tenure.
She added that Zardari was criticised for saying that Pakistan needed 100 billion dollars, but now the very nation is hoping that its Army Chief succeeds in negotiating an aid package of 30 illion dollars with the US. (ANI)
