WASHINGTON: Former United States secretary of state Madeleine Albright described Pakistan as an ‘international migraine’ on Tuesday.
Counting elements such as nuclear weapons, terrorism, extremism, corruption and poor economic situation, she said that the important location of Pakistan converted every national issue into an international one. She said that the current US secretary of state, who was on her way to India, had a tough job ahead of her.
In the wake of tensions between India and Pakistan in the aftermath of the Mumbai attacks, Albright said that President Asif Ali Zardari was trying hard to deal with the issue at hand. She said that Zardari was working to gain control and develop a country that was a very difficult place to administer.
