Washington’s propaganda, euphemistically called public diplomacy, is directed with hammer and tong against Pakistan. ...
There are reports about a possible visit by US senators, including John McCain, today. This interaction should be used to air Pakistan’s genuine grievances about Washington’s pro-Delhi disposition, the latest demonstration of which came in the enormous pressure on some NSG members to change their principled position on criteria for the group’s membership. Expecting Pakistan to help stabilise Afghanistan while showering praise on India does not sound like good practice.
