Islamabad, Sep 23 (IANS) Pakistan was on Friday urged by a leading daily to talk individually to countries to step up its diplomatic offensive against India.
“China is already on Pakistan’s side,” the Nation said in an editorial. It said greater efforts must be made to make Muslim countries publicly denounce India’s policy.
It said South Asian countries such as Afghanistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh were all on India’s side. Iran, it pointed out, had opted for neutrality.
“The rest of the world has chosen to look the other way, which could be countered by Pakistan asking for individual support one by one. The US and other global powers have so far chosen not to get involved,” it said.
India-Pakistan ties have hit a new lot over Kashmir, and especially after the September 18 attack on an army camp in Uri which left 18 soldiers dead.
