Srinagar: In a tit for tat move, the Pak Foreign Office has announced that all US diplomats in Pakistan would be facing restrictions from Friday (today) under which they won’t be able to roam around without seeking permission from the authorities concerned, Pak media reports said on Friday.
The US restrictions on the Pakistani diplomats will come into effect today. Under the Trump administration’s decision, the officials of the Pakistan embassy and four consulates are required to get permission from the US State Department five days before going beyond the set limits.
Meanwhile, embarrassed and humiliated beyond words, the Trump administration has turned down Islamabad’s request to put the name of Jamaat-ul-Ahrar leader Umer Khalid Khurasani aka Abdul Wali on the UNSC sanctions committee’s list.
Left with nothing more than “disappointed”, the Pak Foreign Office spokesman remarked, “We are deeply disappointed over the failure of the Sanctions Committee to list Wali who is a known terrorist and has the blood of hundreds of innocent Pakistanis on his hands”.
