US aligning with India against Pakistan, Modi does not want peace talks, say Pervez Musharraf

The United States treats Pakistan according to its needs and “ditches” when it does not require Islamabad, former military ruler Pervez Musharraf has said as he accused America of aligning with India against his country.

The former President and chief of All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) in an interview with Voice of America said that Pakistan-US relations have suffered quite a blow and are currently at “the lowest ebb”, the Express Tribune reported.

Musharraf also said Indian that Prime Minister Narendra Modi “isn’t an advocate of peace talks”.

In an interview with Voice of America, Musharraf said when he was at the helm, “I spoke to both the Prime Ministers, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh. They both wanted to move forward from the disputes” between the two countries.

The 74-year-old retired general, who is facing high treason charges, has been living in Dubai since last year when he was allowed to leave Pakistan for medical treatment.

He has said that there is an absolute requirement to sit with the US and resolve whatever tiff the countries are facing. “This connects to Afghanistan. There are allegations against Pakistan, and both the countries have their grievances,” he said.
