Clinton undecided about visiting Pakistan
US President Bill Clinton has not yet decided whether to include Pakistan in his planned South Asia tour next year, a news report quoting US ambassador William B Milam said today.
Press reports have suggested that Clinton may visit India and Bangladesh around February 2000.
Milam said the US was unhappy with the October 12 overthrow of the elected government in Pakistan and was waiting to see what policies the new military administration adopts, the official news agency APP reported.
''We do have bedrock principles,'' the ambassador told reporters, recalling that the US senate has requested Clinton not to lift sanctions against Pakistan until democracy is restored there.
