KARACHI: With a thaw in US-India ties, weak Pakistani lobbying in Washington is seen as the main reason for growing Indian acceptance in the United States, analysts opined Thursday.

There has been a surge in conspiracies against Pakistan, while it seems as if there is no one to highlight Pakistan’s sacrifices in Washington, said known analysts while talking to ARY News.

The drone strike in Balochistan ahead of Modi’s visit to the US is a manifestation of pro-India US policies, they said, as it helped the Indian premier to speak venom against Pakistan in his address to the US Congress.

Analysts hold weak Pakistani lobbying and depressed economy as major factors behind US tilt towards neighbouring arch-rival.

India has been investing huge sums on lobbying to shape US opinion against Pakistan, whereas Pakistani diplomacy seems to stand nowhere in this context. No one even knows who Pakistani lobbyists in Washington are.

This has further weakened Pakistan’s case in the US. There is no one to underscore Pakistan’s efforts to make world a peaceful place.

Neither any international conference was organized to bring those measures to light nor was US officials given any special briefing.

This failed foreign policy has left Pakistan unable to fight its case before the world in spite of having laid thousands of lives in the war on terror.
