ISLAMABAD: Minister for Defence, Engineer Khurram Dastgir Khan has said that the Americans are choosing to blame Pakistan for their sixteen-year old failure in Afghanistan.
“A lot of blame game has come to Pakistan. It is one of the reasons (that as) why we have now begun to fence the border. And it is very interesting: now that we say Ok you blame us that we send people across or that some people are crossing over, we will fence the whole 2600 kilometres,” he said in an interview with national radio and TV channel of Belgium, VRT: Flemish Radio and TV. The minister along with a delegation of parliamentarians was on a four-day visit (January 22-25) to Brussels.
