Baig urges Big powers to help settle international disputes
20 May, 2005
ISLAMABAD, May 21 (Online): Former army chief General (Retd) Aslam Baig has said that big powers should explore ways to resolve outstanding problems confronting the world, however ignoring the resistance movements in the Muslim world will pose serious threats to the world states.
The United States is striving to dominate and exceed the whole world with support of its military and economic might setting aside the way to tackle problems through negotiations, Aslam Baig expressed these views at a seminar held here Friday.
Outlining comparison between peaceful co-existence and aggressive policy, he noted that US was pursuing aggressive policy based on barbarity and show of power and mass killings in Afghanistan and Iraq were example of it while on the other hand China was emerging as sole world superpower with peaceful co-existence with its neighbours as well as world states.
The resistance movements initiated in the Muslim states could not be undermined and these forces had compelled former Soviet Union to withdraw from war ravaged Afghanistan and these resistance forces had now waged struggle against the US and if these resistance forces role was ignored it would leave negative impact on the world states, he observed.
He underscored that the US had wanted to entangle India into regional minor problems so as to minimize its global role that's why the Indian leadership should come forward and play its due role for international peace.
