Addressing at the Foreign Correspondents Club, he said-
- Problem is that the terrorism issue has become so central to the relationship that it makes the relationship difficult to grow.
- We have one standout country in the region which has a different view of terrorism which makes it a difficult partner for all of us.
- Pakistan is using terror as an instrument of diplomatic policy.
