Islamabad, Oct 9 (IBNS): Pakistan's Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said the days of his country's dependency on the US over its military and other requirements are over.

“If one source dries up, we have no option but to go to another source. It may cost more, it may consume more resources, but we have to fight that war, and that’s what we emphasized to all the people that we met,” Abbasi told Arab News.

“Any sanctions or restraints… put on our systems only degrades our efforts to fight terror, and it affects the whole equation in this region,” he said.

“We have major US weapons systems in our military, but we’ve also diversified. We have Chinese and European systems. Recently, for the first time we inducted Russian attack helicopters," the Pakistani leader said.

The Pakistani Prime Minister told Arab News the world should recognize Pakistan’s efforts in fighting the “world’s war” on terror.
