LAHORE: Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani on Sunday said that Pakistan had many achievements on the foreign front, saying its foreign policy was successful.

“Afghan President Hamid Karzai's unconditional support to Pakistan against foreign aggression, India's vote to Pakistan in the UN Security Council and country's renewed role in the European Union (EU) reflect the effectiveness of our foreign policy,” he said during a press conference after a meeting with PML-Q leadership at Zahoor Elahi House here.

Regarding Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif's recent statements, the Prime Minister said Shahbaz Sharif was merely tarnishing the image of his own fraternity through baseless allegations of corruption but others could also level similar allegations against Shahbaz Sharif, adding that PML-N's corruption mantra could not deceive people any more.

With reference to accountability of PML-N, Gilani said there was a fine line between accountability and revenge and Nawaz Sharif used Saif-ur-Rehman for political vendetta and victimization during his tenure, adding that PPP had not tried to be 'bitter' against opponents for their past mistakes.
