PAKISTAN WILL NOT, CANNOT INTERFERE WITH US/ISRAEL NUKE ATTACK ON IRAN
PEACE BETWEEN PAKISTAN AND INDIA ON THE HORIZON
Pakistan president General Pervez Musharraf stated at a recent press conference that his government and country are opposed to a US/Israel attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, "However, if the United States attacks, I don't know how we could interefere."
But Pakistan could stand to lose billions of dollars in energy deals with Iran and India should a full scale war break out centred around the Iran/Israel conflict.
A pipeline is now under construction to bring natural gas from Iranian fields to Pakistan, and then onto India. This pipeline deal has caused major diplomatic tensions with Washington, mcuh to the chagrin of Musharraf.
“Pakistan wants gas. Iran wants to sell it. What is the problem?” Musharraf said. “We need the gas."
During the press conference, Musharraf struck out at the Danish newspaper that originally published the blasphemous images of Islamic prophet Mohammed, and the dozens of media outlets around the world who've continued to reproduce the images.
It has nothing to do with freedom of the press, Musharraf inferred.
He said the newspaperes were “being totally oblivious to the consequences for the world, for world peace and harmony. I don’t see how any civilised person can take the issue of freedom of press to hurt the feelings of such a large population of the world. I think this is taking freedom of press to its limit.
Musharraf also spoke of how the US could help finish the 60-plus years dispute between Pakistan and India over the border region Kashmir.
“This can be resolved now, and the United States must contribute,” Musharraf said.
“I believe now, at this moment, Kashmir is ripe for a resolution,” he said. “The people of Kashmir, on both sides of the border - the Line of Control - are for peace.”
