The former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has compared the narratives of Afghanistan and Pakistan on international level as he strongly criticizes the foreign policy of the country which he believes has pushed the country towards isolation.

“We have isolated ourselves. Despite giving sacrifices, our narrative is not being accepted. Afghanistan’s narrative is being accepted, but ours is not. We must look into it,” he said during an exclusive interview with Dawn News.

This comes as pressures on the rise on Pakistan regarding the presence of the sanctuaries and alleged support of the country to terrorist groups.

In other parts of his interview, Sharif has also criticized the lack of actions by the country’s leadership to conclude the trial of the Mumbai attacks.

His remarks had sparked controversies on domestic level in Pakistan as well as reactions in India.

“Militant organisations are active. Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai? Explain it to me. Why can’t we complete the trial?”  Sharif had asked in the interview.
