Jammu, November 30,
Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today chastised BJP for making noises about the isolation of Pakistan and asserted that “ Pakistan is no more isolated internationally today that it was six months ago.”
Omar Abdullah tweeted on Wednesday, “Regardless of what BJP spokespersons would have us believe Pakistan is no more isolated internationally today than it was six months ago.”
Omar also a former minister of state for external affairs wrote this one line critique of BJP’s obsession with “ isolation of Pakistan,” particularly after the cancellation of SAARC summit that was to be held in Islamabad , Pakistan in November 2016, following terror attack in Uri on September 18, after the cacophony of this phrase by BJP yesterday. The BJP had attributed the terror attack at Nagrota army camp on Tuesday to “ desperation of Pakistan arising out of its isolation at the global level.”
While this is true that Pakistan faced lot of flak after the Uri terror attack , which according to Indian and international analysts , was executed by Pakistan based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba, and the SAARC summit was cancelled as five out of the eight nations sided with India in boycotting Islamabad meet , but the growing relationship of Islamabad with Russia, Iran has shown that Pakistan matters to these countries. Its geo-strategic location remains crucial to the United States as well despite sweet-sour trajectory since 9/11 .
Pakistan is still in the list of allies of the U S. However, surprising were the joint military exercise by Pakistan and Russia, the latter once regarded as an unbreakable ally of India . On the other hand China has further consolidated with Islamabad , manifested through China- Pakistan Economic Corridor ( CEPC)
Organization of Islamic Conference had also supported Pakistan on Kashmir and of late Islamabad has been hearing music from other countries , including Turkey and the outgoing UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon .
The ugly paste of Uri attack is peeling off from Pakistan as the world is looking at its own interests in Pakistan and its neighborhood.
Omar is rated as among one of the finest analyst of international affairs.
