Pakistan’s national security adviser Moeed Yusuf has complained about Joe Biden’s ignorance of not contacting PM Imran Khan as Washington attempts to prevent the Taliban from taking over Afghanistan in accordance with the US troops’ withdrawal. He said that Pakistan is too important to be ignored on such significant matters.
Yusuf admits that the cold shoulder Pakistan is receiving from Joe Biden is because the Taliban have captured some of Afghanistan’s territory in a ruthless manner. Earlier, Washington depended on Pakistan to empower senior Taliban leadership up on the negotiation front. However, now Joe Biden has completely ignored Pakistan, despite US-Pakistan relations beyond Afghanistan.
