History teaches us to be careful of trusting the United States: Khawaja Asif

ISLAMABAD - In response to US President Trump's tirade against Pakistan, Minister for Foreign Affairs Khawaja Asif has said the past of Pakistan suggests the country should be careful of trusting the United States.

In his series of tweets, the foreign minister also stated that Pakistan has been cleaning the mess of decades since the past four years.

"You have asked what did we do? A dictator surrendered [before the US] on a single phone call, our country witnessed the worse bloodbath, you carried out 57,800 attacks on Afghanistan from our bases, your forces were supplied arms and explosives through our soil, thousands of our civilians and soldiers became victims of the war initiated by you," he tweeted.

"We considered your enemy as our own, we filled the Guantanamo Bay, we served you with such an enthusiasm that we left our country with load shedding and gas shortage. We tried to please you on the cost of our economy, we provided tens of thousands of visas as a result of which the networks of Black Water spread across our country," he wrote in another tweet.

"For the past four years, we have been clearing the debris. Our forces are fighting in an exemplary manner, there is an unending saga of sacrifices. The past teaches us not to blindly trust the US. We are feeling sorry as you are not happy but we will not compromise on our prestige anymore," he concluded.
