WASHINGTON: Islamabad and Washington may not partake in similar close relations they once had previously, said Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States Asad Majeed Khan Wednesday.
Addressing Geo News, Asad Majeed said, “right now, the Biden organization is confronting a great deal of analysis in the US. Indeed, even the American media is censuring Washington’s Afghan departure strategy.”
Expressing that Pakistan played a critical part to play in Afghanistan [after the Taliban takover], the diplomat said that Pakistan may not appreciate as close, friendly relations with the US as it once did.
“To expect relations among Pakistan and the US to by and by get back to what they used to be in the past won’t be a sensible methodology,” he said.
Majeed said Pakistan’s binds with China were solid and loving. He said the US is a significant accomplice of Pakistan, adding that Islamabad will give a valiant effort to keep a decent methodology between the two nations.
While reacting to an inquiry, the agent said news reports and examinations didn’t mirror the approaches.
“Nations take autonomous choices to secure their inclinations,” he noted. “We are securing our inclinations and will keep on doing as such. The US does likewise,” he added.
He said any place Pakistan and America’s inclinations adjusted, individuals will notice the two nations pushing ahead in their relations.
Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan
Ties among Pakistan and the US appear to be stressed in the wake of the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.
Notwithstanding expecting office recently, US President Joe Biden has still not called or addressed Prime Minister Imran Khan, even after the US emptied its powers and residents from Afghanistan.
In a new meeting with the Middle East Eye, PM Imran Khan talked about not getting a call from the US president.
“All things considered, you know, it’s dependent upon him. It’s [US] a superpower,” he had said.
At the point when the questioner let him know he found that “totally amazing” that the two heads of states had not yet spoken, PM Khan had said:
“Indeed, our security bosses have spoken. Our unfamiliar pastor has been in contact with the US unfamiliar secretary. Be that as it may, no, we haven’t spoken, however we are in contact,” he had added.
