US assesses Pakistan’s role

Demand for revocation of Allied status

The role of Pakistan in the last 20 years will be assessed, said US Secretary of State Tony Blinken.

Blinken’s response came after angry US and Senate representatives said Pakistan had played a double role in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks and that it was time for the United States to reconsider its relationship with Pakistan.

The US envoy told the Biden administration that the status given to Pakistan as a non-NATO ally was not appropriate. It should be reconsidered. In fact, it was suggested that it be removed. Blinkon had to face the wrath of angry members on Monday. Members blamed Blinkon for the collapse of the Afghan government so quickly and for the State Department’s hasty release of Americans and other civilians.

Democrat Congressman Joaquin Castro said Pakistan had long supported the Taliban and sheltered their leaders. So now is the time to rethink our relationship with the United States. That country has been accorded the status of a non-NATO ally should also be reconsidered.

Meanwhile, the chairman of the foreign subcommittee, Bill Keating, said that Pakistan has played a negative role in the Afghanistan issue. He helped the Taliban. In Pakistan, the Taliban reorganized in 2010. ISI has links to the Haqqani network. In a way, Pakistan is responsible for the deaths of American soldiers. Prime Minister Imran Khan celebrated the victory after the Taliban seized power.
