Musharraf: Disappointed Obama not in Pakistan

WASHINGTON: Former president Pervez Musharraf on Friday voiced disappointment that US President Barack Obama was not stopping in his country on the sidelines of his maiden visit to India.

HONG KONG-PAKISTAN-DIPLOMACY“I would take it as a disappointment, yes, indeed,” Musharraf told MSNBC television.

Musharraf also criticized Obama for not speaking about Kashmir, saying: “It doesn’t resonate well with the people of Pakistan.”

“They take it that the United States or the president of the United States is not that concerned about Pakistan’s own sensitivities and interests,” he said.

Obama was en route Friday for Mumbai and New Delhi on a trip aimed at convincing India that he wants to push ahead relations between the world’s two largest democracies after an early focus on Pakistan and China.

For many US policymakers, it would be unthinkable for Obama to visit Pakistan on the sidelines of the long-promoted trip as Obama is hoping to show India that he sees it as a global power and not simply as a regional player.
