ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Monday said the fate of Shakeel Afridi is going to be decided by Pakistani courts, and not by any US presidential candidate.
Nisar was reacting to the interview of US presidential candidate Donald Trump on American News channel.
The Minister stated that contrary to Mr Trump’s misconception, Pakistan is not a colony of United States. He should learn to treat sovereign countries with respect, Nisar added.
Interior minister further added that Shakeel Afridi is a Pakistani citizen and nobody else has the right to dictate to us about his future.
Nisar concluded that 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.
