9/11 attacks planned in Karachi and Pak should compensate victims: Chris Alexander

New Delhi: Former Canadian minister and diplomat Chris Alexander minced no words asking Pakistan to compensate the 9/11 victims.

Chris Alexander gave reasons for his statement that the attacks were planned in Karachi.

A leader protected by Pakistan hatched the 9/11 attacks and it behooved Pakistan to compensate the victims of the gruesome attack.

The former Canadian ambassador to Afghanistan has also said that Afghan assets belongs not to Pakistanis but to the people of Afghanistan.

"Assets of the Central Bank of Afghanistan belong to Afghans — not to the Pakistani military's terrorist proxies or their victims. Pakistan should compensate victims of 9/11 — attacks planned in Karachi under a leader protected by Pakistan up to 2011", Alexander said in a tweet with hashtag #SanctionPakistan.

The United States has announced that it will give half of the $7 billion funds of Afghanistan for 9/11 victims, IANS reports.

The funds according to Alexander belongs not to Pakistan military's terrorist proxies (probably referring to Taliban).

"Six months ago, the US, @UN & @NATO abandoned Afghanistan to terrorist thugs sponsored by Pakistan. Stop clinging to a failed strategy that leaves Afghans in agony & makes the whole world less safe. Act now to end famine & oppression", Alexander said in another tweet.

US President Joe Biden in a controversial move decided to split $7 billion foreign assets of Afghanistan between the victims of the 9/11 attacks and for the humanitarian assistance of Afghanistan.

Pakistan questioned the US decision of giving the half of the Afghan assets to the victims of the 9/11 attacks, saying utilisation of Afghan funds should be the "sovereign decision of Afghanistan", reports say.

However, many in the US including 9/11 victims' families criticized the American decision saying that Afghan funds should not have been arbitrarily used by the US government.

"Pakistan has seen the US decision to unfreeze the Afghan assets held by the US banks to release $3.5 billion for humanitarian assistance in Afghanistan and $3.5 billion for compensation to families of 9/11 victims," Pak Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar responded in a carefully worded statement.
