He was reacting to the interview of US presidential candidate Donald Trump on Fox News.

The Minister said that contrary to Mr Trump’s misconception, Pakistan is not a colony of the United States. He should learn to treat sovereign countries with respect.

“Contrary to Mr Trump’s misconception, Pakistan is not a colony of the United States of America. He should learn to treat sovereign countries with respect.”

“Trump also seems to be ignorant, historically, of the huge scarifies Pakistan and its people have made while standing with or supporting US policies over the years.”

Trump had also said he planned to leverage US aid, “because we give a lot of aid to Pakistan. We give a lot of money to Pakistan.”

He said Donald Trump also seems to be ignorant historically of the huge scarifies Pakistan and its people have made, while standing with or supporting US policies over the years.
