Mushahid Hussain Syed, special Kashmir envoy of Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was quoted as saying, “The US is no longer a world power. It is a declining power. Forget about it.” He was speaking after the conclusion of an interaction at the Atlantic Council, one of the top American think-tanks.
Syed even warned US that Pakistan would move towards China and Russia if its views on Kashmir and India are not considered.
A member in the audience after the conclusion of the 90-minute interaction had asked him a question, responding to which he expressed his frustration over the lack of response on the issue.
Syed submitted a dossier of alleged human rights violation in Kashmir to special US representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Richard Olson.
Syed and Shazra Mansab, another Kashmir envoy, are in the US as part of the Pakistan’s effort to apprise the global community of the current situation in Kashmir and alleged human rights violations in the Valley.
