  1. A friend in need is a friend indeed – cultivate good relatioons with your neighbors first is a p oi ece of advice for our decision makers in pakistan

    • Extremely sorry but this big amount of money that they get will not reach fairly to victims!! I hvnt observed any such news on local media! & again sorry that they just need money and they follow US- they would just keep a diplomatic relationship!! 🙁 and they dont take such advises
