Accusing the United States of not fulfilling promises made with Pakistan, the terrorism-plagued country's former military ruler Gen (Retd) Pervez Musharraf has said that victory against terrorism could not be achieved only through military means.
Former President Pervez Musharraf said US has not fulfilled the promises made with Pakistan.
Addressing the annual dinner of World Affairs Council, Musharraf said Pakistan is doing all that it can against terrorism and it deserves cooperation instead of criticism.
"Pakistan is a victim of terrorism and Pakistani government is trying to cope up with terrorism, “ he added.
Defending Pakistan, Musharraf said at least seven hundred terrorists were killed and key leaders of Al Qaeda were arrested by Pakistan. Pakistan Army is doing well to root out terrorism but victory could not be achieved only by using military might at Pak-Afghan bordering areas.
He said resolving economic and social problems of the people would eliminate terrorism.
