A Pakistani Minister has branded the US Ambassador to Afghanistan a ‘little pygmyí in latest Twitter row which erupted following Prime Minister Imran Khanís remarks regarding Afghan peace process and establishment of an interim government in Afghanistan.
The Human Rights Minister of Pakistan Shireen Mazari made the remarks in response to a Twitter post by Ambassador Bass regarding PM Imranís recent controversial statement.
"Some aspects of #cricket apply well in diplomacy, some do not. ImranKhanPTI, important to resist temptation to ball-tamper with the #Afghanistan peace process and its internal affairs," Ambassador said in a Twitter post.
In response to Ambassador Bassís remarks, Mazari wrote in her Twitter "Clearly you little pygmy your knowledge of ball tampering is as void as your understanding of Afghanistan and the region! Clearly in your case ignorance is certainly not bliss! Another sign of Trumpian mischief a la Khalilzad style!"
"Haha! Haters gonna hate! But seriously what diplomatic norms? US dips have been violating them all day today from Zalmay to this moron!" she wrote in another Twitter after being accused of violating diplomatic norms.
The latest Twitter row between U.S. and Pakistani officials erupted after controversial remarks of PM Imran Khan regarding Afghanistan.
The Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan had earlier suggested an interim government setup in Afghanistan to help end the impasse in Afghan peace process.
Speaking with local journalists at his office on Monday, PM Khan claimed that the Afghan government was a hurdle in peace process as it was insisting on direct talks with the Taliban group.
He also added that a neutral interim government can help with the success of peace process in Afghanistan by holding a free and transparent election.
