Islamabad: Visiting US Assistant Secretary of State Christina Rocca has emphatically told the Pakistani leadership that lifting of sanctions against the country is link-ed to restoration of democracy and voiced Washington’s concern over Islamabad’s support to Kashmir and Afghanistan militants. Rocca told President Pervez Musharraf yesterday the Bush administration wanted to follow an independent policy towards India and Pakistan but clarified this was not aimed at isolating Islamabad. She said India figured high in the US priority list in the post-cold-war era and the US does not want to see any country in the subcontinent through the prism of another country, said diplomatic sources here.(PTI)
