On a street in Lahore three people died, two shot and one crushed, this incident sparked a chain of events that have great regional and global gravity. Mr. Shah Mehmood Qureshi, whose denial to recognise Davis as a diplomat became ex-foreign minister. An additional victim is the trilateral meeting among Pakistan, Afghanistan and the US which were scheduled for 23-24 February – but not any longer. The motive for the ‘postponement’ is said to be because of ‘political changes’ in Pakistan. American officials in Pakistan have stated quite openly that there will be no high-level dialogue until the release of the Raymond Davis.
There has not been an attack by drones anywhere in Pakistan since Mr. Davis was arrested, It is said that US thought that continuing the drone attacks was going to make a bad circumstances even worse. Another casualty may be the meeting between President Zardari and President Obama. Cancellation of this meeting would be diplomatic equivalent of having a shoe thrown at you. There were reports that Pakistani ambassador to Washington was warned of a possible break in diplomatic relations unless Mr. Davis was released. President Obama today said while answering a question that Senator John Kerry has been sent to Pakistan with very strong message.
So this incident has become an incident of great national and international importance. If Mr. Davis is released there will be problem nationwide otherwise there might be sanctions by United States.
