So Trump confirms shifting of our embassy to Jerusalem. Another campaign promise kept. However, before that was announced, this is what the pakis bleated:

Pakistan affirms solidarity with Palestine, urges US to refrain from shifting embassy to Jerusalem

Pakistan on Wednesday reaffirmed full solidarity with the Palestinian people and expressed concern over the proposed move by the United States to shift its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, saying “such a step would constitute a clear violation of international law and UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions”.


International law? This, coming from the fountainhead of terrorism and a safe haven for every jihadist terrorist group of every color and ethnicity in the world.

Another paki case, another instance where something stinks in pakiland and it's not just the unwashed abduls.

Army recovers Pakistani engineer kidnapped from Afghanistan

The Pakistan Army on Wednesday recovered a Pakistani engineer who had been kidnapped in Afghanistan earlier this year.
"My father has returned in good health"
It is not clear under what terms and circumstances his release was secured.
The engineer had been working on the Torkham-Jalalabad road project in Afghanistan when he was abducted
Ahmed had been working with a construction company overseen by the Frontier Works Organization


So, unanswered questions:

1. If the injineer was "goatnapped" in afghanistan, how as he recovered in pakhanistan?
2. How was the injineer brought over to the land of the pure if there are no terror cells in that land?
3. Was he saved in a dashing cross -border sir-jee-kal raid?
4. Torkham to Jalalabad road is a paki venture to connect their border town with a hotbed of terrorist activity and that town is stuck between ISIS and the 'bunnies. What strategic purpose does the road serve for the pakis? See map below.

Image

5. Was this injineer a member of the ISI? No other goatnapped paki has been recovered this fast. Was ther a deal made between the ISI and the tellibunnies? The Frontier Works Organization is a military engineering organization, and one of the major science and technology commands of the Pakistan Army.
6. The guy was returned in "good health". Really? Six months in tellibunny captivity and he was healthy?
7. Why now? Anything to do with the skummabad fasad?

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread

Sadiq Khan says he can help secure Pak-India peace

The governments may have differences but people's power would finally force them to change their attitude,” he noted and offered he could mediate between Pakistan and India for reconciliation.
When asked to name one thing that he likes the best in Pakistan, his reply was ‘Pakistanis’ who he found very loving and caring. :lol:

Sadiq Khan is trying a bit too hard for a Paki -- just yesterday at Amritsar he wanted the brits to apologize for Jallianwallah bagh --- fat lot of good that is going to do at this time. :roll: But Sadiq Khan is probably trying to curry favour with Khalistani-sympathizers, and harken back to the a time before partition with Britain as the common enemy, for some indo-paki brotherhood to bloom like a mushroom from a pile of cr@p. Trust a Paki to try these kind of devious stunts. but then this is the same guy who carried a flag for Louis Farahkhan's "Nation of Islam" causes during his lawyer days.

The Art And Science Of "Black Propaganda As Practiced By RAA : Pakis "Smell A Rat" In Indian Astrologer's Predictions :mrgreen:

Indian astrologer's tweets about Pakistan: RAW might be handling twitter handle

ISLAMABAD - Tweets apparently by an Indian national predicting some key developments in Pakistan including possible attempt on Jamaatud Dawa chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed’s life, have raised speculation among Pakistani authorities that the twitter handle in question is being handled by Indian foreign intelligence agency, the RAW . Anirudh Kumar Mishra, who claims to be an Indian national and an astrologer, and tweets using the handle @Anirudh_Astro, has made a number of predictions about key developments in Pakistan, and claims that a number of his predictions have turned out to be true. RAA agent under every Paki charpoy :roll:
“Pakistan should look over Hafeez Saeed's security as he is in entering in Shani Mangal effect in 2018 and may get involved in a bomb blast,” Mishra tweeted on November 26th predicting that the JuD chief might get involved in a bomb blast next year. Now that the Milli Muslim League has been "mainstreamed"- and Hafiz Suar's MML is going to win the election next year and Hafiz will be the new PM of Pakiland he should now take, extra extra steps to avoid being Wajib ul cutlet !
The Lahore High Court (LHC) in the last week of November issued release orders of the JuD chief after it rejected the Punjab provincial government’s request to extend his detention.Hafiz Saeed, as well as his party the JuD, are facing the UN sanctions because of their alleged involvement in 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks.The Indian astrologer, Mishra also claims that his prediction of December 1st terrorist attack on Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) in Peshawar, was quite right only with error of a day. If RAA planned the whole operation as was alleged by one Paki Minister, then the "close prediction" does make sense :mrgreen:
The Senate Standing Committee on Interior in its meeting held on December 4th had taken up the issue of Mishra’s tweets about the Peshawar terrorist attack and directed the Ministry of Interior and the Foreign Office to look into some of his other tweets signalling possibility of more such attacks. Rather spending the time on frivolous matters such as this, the Senate Committee should focus on how to assert its authority and call the military to accountability :mrgreen:
Expressing his concern over the fresh wave of terrorism across the country, Senator Rehman Malik had said that “India was behind terrorism in Pakistan and its agency the RAW was using Afghanistan soil for its nefarious activities.” Referring to the tweets of Mr Mishra, he said that it was evident from his tweet that India was involved in terrorism in Pakistan.He directed the Ministry of Interior to investigate and take the matter at an international forum. Another dossier to be "manufactured" for the UN Sec- Gen, delegations of imminent Paki MNA etcs to take a "free ride" to phoren capitals - at public expense , to "expose" the nefarious designs of RAA :mrgreen:
“Why so much panic on an astrologer in Pakistan? I have predicted about earthquake, elections and sports too. If I was from any agency why I would have alerted you? My prediction of terrorist attack on USA came true as well,” the self-proclaimed Indian astrologer tweeted in response to the remarks of Senator Malik. In another tweet on September 21st, Mishra said, “Because Mexico had an earthquake, I tried to calculate in sub-continent and found that one may occur in Pakistan within the end of October.”He claims that his prediction about the killing of former al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad also proved true.“My first major prediction on 18 April 2011 on Facebook was that a famous shoot out will happen in the next 17 days. And Osama Bin Laden was shot on May 2nd 2011,” he tweeted in reply to a question as to “What was your first prediction (error of the day)?” The best strategy for Pakistan would be to do a tit for tat. Get an ISI agent to "adopt" an on-line persona of an astrologer and do the needful


PS: To be on the safe side, first get a fatwa from the Islam Brigade that astrology is "kosher in Malsi" :mrgreen:

I can understand the need for feel good equal equal, but the article makes such ridiculous arguments as 'the port of Gwadar has infinite expandability because Pakistan has a 700km long coastline', so the question is how stupid does one have to be to feel good after reading such a specious argument? What kind of mind produces such drivel and what kind of minds eagerly consume it? One could say Malsi and 7th century, but I doubt those guys were that stupid either.

I suspect these guys could be evolving into a new species rather like Smeagol > Gollum.

hang on a minute! Don't forget to mention that mysterious djinn mud island which keeps appearing and disappearing. They can use it as a stealth underwater harbor when submerged.

this is a paki ploy, pure and simple. To embarrass the GoI.

Simple minded sadiq khan has no official authority to voice such opinions in a foreign country. He has come here as the mayor of london/private citizen and not as the representative of the british govt.

His words are merely WKK propaganda.

Pakis Levy "Anti- Dumping Tax" On Imports From "Taller Than Mountain Fliend" :mrgreen:

China’s Billions Cannot Guarantee it a Free Ride in Pakistan
Bloomberg.

In a dusty factory in northern Karachi, the nation’s oldest tile manufacturer had been struggling to jump on board one of the world’s fastest-growing construction booms.Fighting to compete with cheap imports from neighboring China, Shabbir Tiles & Ceramics Ltd., a unit of the House of Habib family business operating since 1841, had suffered four years of losses. It’s now on course to post an annual profit next financial year after Pakistan placed an anti-dumping duty on Chinese tiles in October. That follows similar moves from the regulator on steel products. First there is the inevitable theoretical hype ("gamechanger ") about the CPEC. Then, there is the practical reality as exampled here ! ( devastation on the local economy ). This is just one example of what will be happen at the "national level" in the very near future
“We have got an industry which has been affected by a lot of Chinese imports,” Chief Executive Officer Syed Masood Abbas Jaffery said in an interview. Now “the overall construction industry is in a growth phase and so is the tile industry.”
The move to protect some local industries comes as concerns mount in Pakistan that its strongest ally China, which is financing $55 billion of infrastructure projects across South Asia’s second-largest economy, was destroying domestic manufacturing by flooding the market with cheap goods. Pakistan is a key part of China’s Belt and Road trade initiative and one of the main land routes that links it to the Arabian sea through the port in southwestern Gwadar. ( which will double as a submarine base also !)
Pakistani industrialists fear China’s ever-growing influence will put them out of business. Before the duty was imposed, tile imports from China had more than doubled in the past five years and now make up roughly 50 percent of the industry, according to Shabbir’s Chief Financial Officer Waquas Ahmed. With government support, the tile maker now forecasts it will boost operations to near 90 percent capacity for the year starting July. As long as the Chinis express lip service support to Pakistan against "eternal enemy" India, the Paki Establishment is not alarmed . Not knowing that in international diplomacy - as they have learned the hard way - that there are no permanent friends , only permanent interests :D
Pakistan’s National Tariff Commission has been fielding an increased number of anti-dumping complaints, with Chinese companies featuring “fairly significantly,” Chairman Qasim Niaz said in an interview in Islamabad.Pakistan’s move to place tariffs on imported steel boosted local production by 23 percent to 3.6 million tons last year, the biggest increase among 40 countries, according to World Steel Association data, and local steel firms are expanding.“China has been dumpers,” said Towfiq Chinoy, an adviser at Karachi-based International Steels Ltd. who believes the anti-dumping tax is “significant” for the local industry. “They have sort of put us in handcuffs for three-to-four years.”
Publicly Islamabad is loath to criticize China -- the neighbor it has long called its “all-weather friend” -- particularly as ties with the U.S. under Donald Trump have become increasingly strained after he denounced the country for harboring terrorist groups in August. Some analysts see U.S. pressure driving Pakistan toward China as its relations with neighboring India and Afghanistan show little sign of improvement.While Chinese businesses are keen to take advantage of opportunities in Pakistan on the back of the trade corridor, Pakistan’s raising of barriers is unlikely to displease too many in Beijing.
“China could suck it up in the short-run,” said Uzair Younus, a South Asia analyst at Washington-based consultancy Albright Stonebridge Group LLC. “After all, Pakistan’s economy taking a hit hurts Chinese investments and weakens Pakistan’s ability to repay Chinese loans -- it’s a catch-22.” In the long term, Pakistan is going to be a " Chinese colony ", unless ... !
“Chinese goods will continue to flood the market, they can’t all be stopped,” Faisal Ahmed, chief executive officer at Artistic Denim Mills Ltd., said in an interview at his clothing plant in Karachi.

La-Whoris Eating Dead ( Animal !) Meat? :shock:

Lahore police recovers huge quantity of dead animal meat

Lahore : Police recovered a huge quantity of meat of dead cattle which was to be supplied to butcher shops in the city.
According to details Nawan Kot police recovered 250 maunds (approximately 10,000 kilograms) meat of dead animals during an action taken in Shera Kot Bakar Mandi area of the city. The huge "gosht" demand used to be sated by imports from across the border ( India) . Wonder, if this is still the case :D
Three suspects were arrested by the police during the raid while the fourth managed to flee.
The police have sent the samples of the harmful meat to the forensic laboratory for testing. It has also contacted Punjab Food Authority to help destroy the meat . ( Unless it is again "introduced" into the local market by corrupt officials :mrgreen: )
According to sources, dead and sick cattle were slaughtered in Bakar Mandi and their harmful meat was later supplied in Lahore .


PS: Food and specially meat consumption is a very sensitive topics for the Aam Abduls. Recall the massive outcry in the mainstream media , when it was discovered that "donkey meat" was masquerading as "gosht" AKA beef :mrgreen:

JUI-S to have polls alliance with PTI

PESHAWAR - Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Sami has formally announced it will form an electoral alliance with Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, instead of joining its old partners under the banner of Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal.This announcement was made by JUI-S chief Maulana Samiul Haq soon after presiding over a meeting of the party’s central Shura held here on Wednesday at Pardah Bagh. Politics, as they say, make strange bedfellows . There have always been unconfirmed rumours that Imran is a "closet Taliban" . This news "nails" that unconfirmed rumour !

Population emergency
An erratically written article but nonetheless, be afraid of the danger lurking in pakhanistan. It could spill over into India.

A delayed census only highlights the inherent flaws in our planning process.
Sindh...52pc of the population is urbanised
wheat production has shown lacklustre growth over the past few years, while rice production has actually declined
two-thirds of Pakistanis cannot afford a balanced diet. Interestingly enough, Sindh which is the most urbanised province in Pakistan, also has the highest incidence of malnourished and underdeveloped children, making it the most food-insecure region in terms of distribution and access to staple foods.
44pc of children in Pakistan are stunted according to the National Nutrition Survey 2011
Millions in Pakistan will continue to be deprived of proper education, adequate medical facilities, water and sanitation systems, and remain without gainful employment, thus exposing many to become cannon fodder for criminal networks or radical groups.
Moreover, 60pc of the population in Pakistan is younger than 30 and unemployment and under-employment is on the rise. If stringent family planning measures are not taken in order to curb the birth rate, the country’s future is in jeopardy. (and, what of the present? Stellar?)

PAF ordered to shoot down US drones invading Pakistani airspace: Air Chief Sohail Aman

Chief of Pakistan Air Force (PAF) Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman has said that the PAF has been given orders to shoot down any drones, including those of the US, if they violate the country’s airspace.

And, from here on, the boasts and claims went downhill.

“Even Indian defence officials attest to our successes on the battlefield,” Aman boasted.
He also stressed that there was no shortage of talent in the country
“Pakistan is unfortunate in the sense that our neighbours are trying to harm us. India, being our sworn enemy, was behind the attack on Kamran Air Base. What do terrorists want from PAF planes?”
We cannot, though, change our neighbours, Aman lamented.(yes!)
No outside power can engineer a democracy inside a country, nor is democracy the solution to every problem.

Pakis Again Seeking Massa's Help In Solving Issues With India And Afghanistan :roll:

Pakistan rejects US demand for joint operation on its soil

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has flatly rejected the US demand for joint operations against militants on the former’s soil in the latest round of “inconclusive” talks between the two countries held this week, diplomatic sources told The News.In his separate meetings with Pakistan’s civil and military leadership on Monday, the visiting US Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, called for US-Pakistan join operations against the militants of Haqqani Network inside the tribal areas. However sources said the Pakistani leadership ruled out the possibility of the same. The word "reject" gives the (false) impression to the Aam Abduls that Pakistan is firmly in control of the situation :mrgreen:
Sources said the talks between the two sides largely remained inconclusive as Islamabad did not accede to the US demand for joint military operations on its soil. However, Mattis was told that Pakistan would be ready to take action against any group of militants on the receipt of actionable intelligence from the US side. Any foreign action on Pakistani soil is not acceptable, Mattis was told. But is not US violating Paki "air space" to do the dirty work by drones, which the Paki Army is loath to do or cannot do in the Tribal Agencies . Is that not "foreign action on Paki soil"
Mattis met Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa during his brief visit to Pakistan this week. The fact that three separate press statements were issued after the meetings speaks volumes about disagreements among the parties, said a source. Truth is that Pakistan cannot survive financially without US help. The Pakis know it ! The US knows it !
During the talks, Pakistan put forward two solid demands in order to stop cross border terrorism. Firstly, the US has been asked to force the Afghan government to fence the Pak-Afghan border following a similar Pakistani initiative on its side. Secondly, Washington has been told to play its role in the return of Afghan refugees from Pakistan, a step that would ensure no militants can hide in the garb of refugees on the Pakistani soil. Gone are the days when Pakistan used to blackmail Afghanistan. Now it is seeking Massa's help :mrgreen:
“If the US could take these two steps, Pakistan would guarantee that its soil would never be used for any militant activities across the Afghan border,” a source privy to the details of the meeting said. Paki "guarantee" is not worth the paper it is written on . If the "guarantee" is verbal, then the phase "talk is cheap" comes to mind :mrgreen:
Sources claimed that the meeting was held in a cordial environment and the US side also acknowledged Pakistan’s concerns regarding the Indian military presence in Afghanistan and even hinted at playing some role in the resolution of disputes between the two South Asian nuclear states, including the core issue of Kashmir.
Paki "mischief making " at play here !
Pakistan is confident that the United States will amend its South Asia strategy announced by President Trump in August this year. Pakistan had expressed strong reservations about the strategy which called for an increased role of India in Afghanistan. What will happen to Pakistan if the "amendment" is not made :roll:
Earlier, while talking to The News, a State Department spokesperson said that the US had made clear its expectation for decisive action against terrorist and militant groups that operate from Pakistani soil. IOW, "aid" will remain suspended :D
“We have communicated specific steps that Pakistan can take to degrade these groups’ operational activities and to facilitate substantive peace talks between the Taliban and the government of Afghanistan,” a State Department spokesperson told The News in an email response from Washington. Diplomatic words but Pakis can read between the lines

IMF weighs in.

Sheer size of CPEC portfolio appals IMF

The IMF delegation was appalled at the implications of the $60 billion portfolio of CPEC, according to the sources.
As the overall size of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects grows to $60 billion, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) cautioned Pakistan on Wednesday to be mindful about the adverse implications of repayments of loans and profit repatriations to China.
Headed by its Washington-based Mission Chief Harald Finger, the delegation is in town to review Pakistan’s ability to repay its $6.1 billion outstanding loans to the fund.
Pakistan will start repaying some of the CPEC-related loans in next one-and-a-half years that according to Pakistani authorities will start ballooning after 2020, consuming its earnings equal to 0.4% of Gross Domestic Product.
But according to the IMF estimates, those repayments will peak after seven years, reaching to $3.5 billion to $4.5 billion in a single year. The IMF estimates the CPEC-related outflow impact at 1.6% of GDP per annum by 2024.
The IMF was told that the real value of the CPEC projects was not more than $46 billion and so far projects worth only $23 billion have matured, said the sources.
The IMF also said due to increasing government and CPEC-related external repayment obligations, external financing needs are projected to increase to nearly 7.5% of GDP over the medium term


Smoke and mirrors, ladies and gentlemen, smoke and mirrors.

The difference between GNP and GDP should be remembered by Pakis. The example of the Czech Republic is plotted here.
(Basically, the GDP can increase but the proportion of it going to domestic incomes can go down, and the proportion going to the income of foreign investors goes up.)

This Has To Be The Zenith Of Boasting !

'Pakistan to send astronauts into space in two years' :lol:

Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman has announced that Pakistan will be able to send astronauts into space with the collaboration of China ( was not aware that "space travel" was also "covered" under CPEC :mrgreen: ) in the next two years.
He was addressing the inauguration session of AirTech’17 conference, hosted by Air University in Islamabad on Thursday, according to a statement issued by Pakistan Air force (PAF). AirTech’17 is the country’s largest technical and scientific Olympiad, being held at the main campus of Air University from December 7 to 10.The air chief disclosed that Pakistan was currently working to manufacture next generation aircraft with the support of Chinese experts, adding that China was also providing technical support to Pakistan for launching the satellite programme. So, like the Islamic Bum, it ( the space thing !), is most likely a "complete assembly and paint job" imported from China !
Pakistan annually manufactures assembles ( let's me honest about it and call a spade a spade :mrgreen: ) 16 to 20 JF-17 aircraft, which are much better than F-16 planes then why are they still yearning for these !!! in performance, said Aman.
The air chief, in his keynote address on “Leadership, Education & Society Development”, said the purpose of an education system must be to introduce latest technologies and contribute something positive for the betterment of society as a whole. He also urged the importance of industry-academia cooperation. “No doubt, Pakistani students are talented, intelligent and hard-working but to achieve success in life goals, unconditional faith, firm commitment and tireless struggle are essential,” he emphasised. December 7, 2017 appears to be an unusually "high day " for Sohail ( Air Chief Marshal !) . On top of this, he earlier had made a statement that Pakistan will shoot down any US drones that violate the country's airspace . Strong words both ! What had he been smoking that particular day ? Peshawari charas, or too excited to be the keynote address person :D

Massa Sounds Warning In Wake Of POTUS'S Jerusalem Decision

Travel advisory: US restricts movement of staff, citizens in Pakistan
The Express Tribune

The US State Department has issued a travel advisory for its citizens in Pakistan and the Muslim world, urging them to exercise caution in the wake of President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as it “may spark protests, some of which have the potential to become violent”.In its security message, the US Embassy Islamabad reminded Americans citizens of the need for caution and awareness of personal security. Tomorrow is Fridin. The faithfool are all ready to receive the Jummah khutba by the neighbourhood maulvi . Most likely the topic will be the earlier announcement about Jerusalem . After the "lecture" , there is no knowing what can happen . Hope the US Embassy has asked for extra security. Stay tuned ! :mrgreen:
The embassy informed citizens of its 24-hour hotlines set up in Islamabad, Peshawar, Lahore and Karachi.
Trump’s decision has already drawn a sharp reaction from Pakistan. While hundreds of protesters rallied in major cities of the country on Thursday, major demonstrations against the decision are expected on December 8 after Friday prayers. The riled up demonstrators should be well advised to also "target gaddar Pakis" who have "insurance" in form of US passports and are living their lives here !!!

The abduls who are coolly walking by or pointing in the direction of travel are actually "pathfinders", the insiders who let the tellibunnies in.

Its not boasting. In fact its understating their achievements!. Just wait till tomorrow and I can almost guarantee that some pakistanis will be sent into space. Probably not by their choosing but nevertheless they will be forced into near space for a short while.

P.S. No rocket will be needed. :wink:

The Soviets sent up a dog during the early days of the space race. Much more humane for the Chinis to experiment with Pakis instead.

Now if we can just convince the Chinese of the health benefits of eating Paki gall bladders (instead of that of black bears etc) we could solve our Paki problem in no time as they would be eaten to extinction.

Pakistan? No, home is south London, Sadiq Khan tells BBC reporter

Sadiq Khan had a quick response when asked by a BBC reporter whether his visit to Pakistan was “like coming home”, replying: “No, home is south London, mate.”

The mayor of London, on a visit to Pakistan and India, smiled when asked the question but was keen to set the record straight.

Khan’s parents moved from Pakistan to England in the 1960s, and while standing for mayor he frequently referenced his south London upbringing and in particular the fact that his father drove a number 44 bus.

He grew up in Tooting and was elected as the area’s MP in 2005. But the BBC reporter Karl Mercer asked Khan as he crossed over the border from India into Pakistan: “Does it feel like coming home?”

After making clear that was not what he was doing, the mayor elaborated on his emotional connection to the region. “It’s good to be in Pakistan, it’s good to come from India, home of my parents and grandparents. Obviously there’s an emotional connection for me, bearing in mind my connections to this great part of the world.”

Khan became the first Muslim mayor of an EU capital city when he was elected in 2016, having fended off attempts by the Conservative campaign – widely discredited and criticised – to link him to Islamic extremists. Labour claimed the attacks on Khan were dog-whistle racism.

His public profile and popularity have led to him being spoken of as a possible future Labour leader, but while in Pakistan he ruled out that prospect. Khan told ITV: “I never had ambitions in the first place and I’ve got no ambitions now. I love being the mayor. Why give up a job I love to do a job I don’t want? I’m absolutely ruling myself out. Forever.

Defending Mercer’s question, a BBC spokesman said: “Our reporter asked the mayor a question in the context of the trip being referred to by senior politicians in the region as a homecoming. The full answer the mayor gave shows he understood the context of the question.”

What! All this time sada-sadiq was being promoted by the pakis as one of their very own who made it big time. A product of their loins. And, he declines to call himself "from pakhanistan"? That, too, on teetar.

Tauheen! Sar-a-sar tauheen. Oh, the shame.

Their fellow malsic birather from another mirather mulk, eyeran, had launched a ­research rocket carrying a mouse, two turtles and worms. Why did they not ask a paki (for a joy ride)? Would have taken up less space and paid for it.

Terroristan to launch diplomatic campaign against US decision on Jerusalem

KARACHI: A day after President Donald Trump recognised the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Pakistan has decided to launch an international diplomatic campaign against the US decision.

The issue will also be raised on all international forums, including the United Nations.

According to sources privy to development, the government in Islamabad would convince the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) to announce a joint and coordinated strategy in its forthcoming meeting in Turkey against the US ‘controversial’ decision and increase pressure on Trump to withdraw his decision.

They said that Pakistan will extend its full support to the OIC in case of a decision of Muslim Ummah limiting or suspending diplomatic or trade relations with the United States.

Reliable sources in the federal capital said that top authorities, while devising a strategy to raise the issue on international forums, have reviewed effects of the decision on the Ummah and the world at large.

The Foreign Office has already started contacting important countries – including China, Russia, Britain and France – and briefed them about the serious reservations and apprehensions of the Muslim world on the issue.

Sources also said Pakistan wants a coordinated strategy in the upcoming meeting of the UN Security Council. The UN should increase pressure on the Trump administration to withdraw the decision immediately, they added.

Pakistan is also contacting UN Secretary- General António Guterres and the Islamic countries.

Sources said the federal government will also consider the option in case the US does not review its decision, Pakistan can also reconsider its policy of relations or cooperation with the Trump administration in future. Go on Terroriststan! You can kiss the IMF, World Bank and the Big Banks Good Bye!
