By our correspondent

LAHORE: PPP central leader and former Ambassador to the US, Syeda Abida Hussain, has termed Pak-US strategic partnership a window of opportunity for Pakistan and said Pakistan should represent its case and get $30b.

Abida stated this while speaking at a dialogue organised by the TECH Club on the issue of “Pakistan’s internal and external threats” here on Sunday. Abida Hussain said, “We should keep it in view that that America’s strategic partnership was with many other countries and we should present ourselves in an effective manner.”

She said President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari within two years in his office had caused no damage to the interest of the country. She said history of militancy in Punjab or even Jhang wasn’t new. She said she herself had defeated the founder of a banned religious organisation from Jhang in the past and had faced life threats constantly. However, she said she didn’t believe that Sharifs had any liking towards militancy and cited the incident in which the PML-N Quaid had a narrow escape from a bomb blast in Raiwind in past.
