Khawaja Asif asks Zardari to 'rein in' Hussain Haqqani
ISLAMABAD - Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Thursday called on ex-president Asif Zardari to ‘rein in’ former ambassador to the United States (US), Hussain Haqqani, accusing the latter of ‘authoring’ President Donald Trump’s new South Asia policy.

Asif, in a tweet, said: “President Zardari instead of criticising govt, rein in Haqqani his ambassador to US, taking credit of authoring US policy President Trump announced."

Haqqani, who remained Pakistan's ambassador to the US from 2008-2011, was allegedly disowned by the PPP after he authored an article in The Washington Post claiming his ‘connections’ led US to kill Osama bin Laden.

Asif’s tweet comes days after the US administration, signalling a shift in their policy towards Pakistan, threatened to cut off aid to Pakistan for providing 'safe haven' to terrorists.
