US unilateralism, Pakistani hyper-nationalism cause of concern: Haqqani


Pakistan’s former Ambassador to the United States, Prof Husain Haqqani has said that the US-Pakistan relationship was deteriorating due to the rising hyper-nationalism in Pakistan and the United States’ unilateral actions that did not take into account Pakistan’s sovereignty. He was the main speaker at an event at the Washington-based think-tank Foundation for Defence of Democracies along with two FDD experts Reuel Marc Gerecht and Bill Roggio. The event was titled, “Is Al Qaeda dead?—a conversation with Husain Haqqani.” Haqqani said that although al Qaeda had been degraded, several components of al Qaeda were not yet dead and its ideology was alive, which could resuscitate the terrorist outfit any time.
