Pakistan has been playing a negative role for American interests in Afghanistan for many years. Pakistan organized, identified and re-established the Taliban in 2010 after splitting. Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan celebrates the Taliban’s capture of Kabul.
America is angry with Taliban.
On Monday, members of the Republican and Democrat parties were very angry in the House of Representatives, the lower house of the US Parliament. The occasion was the appearance of US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, at a public hearing in front of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee. The topic was Afghanistan and the situation after the withdrawal of American troops from there, in which millions of people had to flee the country, and during this part there was an early suicide attack, which killed 13 American soldiers.
Anthony Blinken told angry lawmakers that Pakistan is involved in many ways in Afghanistan and has many interests there, many of which do not coincide with the interests of the US. Blinken said that Pakistan has been playing a two-sided game about the future of Afghanistan. In this game, he kept the members of the Taliban in hiding, and when the opportunity, with the US, also cooperated in the fight against terrorism.
US on Pakistan’s ties with Taliban
When Blinken was asked whether it was time to review America’s relations with Pakistan, the US Secretary of State said that over the next weeks and months, the Biden administration intends to determine whether Pakistan has been in Afghanistan in the past 20 years. What was the role of Now it will also be decided what role America sees in this part of the world in the next few years.
US lawmakers wanted to know what the US would do in response to Pakistan’s ram-side-knife policy in Afghanistan as they said. Democrat from Texas Joaquin Castro demanded that the Biden administration should immediately open bilateral relations with Pakistan, and the NATO organization, in view of the long-standing cordial relations between Pakistan and the Taliban and the policy of sheltering the organization’s leaders. The status of America’s major ally outside, both should be re-examined. Castro is the chairman of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee’s International Development, International Organizations and Global Corporate Social Impact subcommittee.
America did not know that Ashraf Ghani would leave the country so soon
After the Taliban’s capture of Kabul, the chaos in which America left Afghanistan, was also answered by the US Secretary of State. When asked if he knew that the country’s President Ashraf Ghani was about to leave the country, Anthony Blinken said that he had a phone conversation with Ghani on the night of August 14, but in this conversation, the President of Afghanistan breathed his last. Was told to fight. But as soon as the Taliban entered the border of the capital, Kabul, on August 15, Ashraf Ghani fled the country.
Pakistan is not trust worthy
Democrat Party MP, Bill Keating, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee of the House of Representatives on Europe, Eurasia, Energy, and the Environment and the House Armed Services Committee, as well as an expert on internal security, said that Pakistan is clear. For many years, America has been playing a negative role in Afghanistan.
Bill Keating said that Pakistan organized the Taliban, gave identity and after the disintegration, it was strengthened again in 2010 by raising it again. Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI has close ties with the Haqqani network. The Haqqani network is responsible for the deaths of American soldiers. The prime minister, Imran Khan, celebrated the Taliban’s capture of Kabul, saying it was akin to breaking the chains of slavery.
Bill Keating, like Joaquin Castro, described Pakistan’s role in Afghanistan as not credible and demanded a re-review of US-Pakistan relations. There are two things behind this tough attitude of US lawmakers. Firstly, the way America had to flee from Afghanistan, it has shaken the entire leadership of America. The debate continues on this matter and the Biden administration is being heavily criticized for this.
Ignoring the Taliban could have dire consequences for the international world
The second thing, and it is of great importance for India, is that India’s Ambassador to the US, Taranjit Singh Sandhu, has contacted lawmakers and senators of both the parties in Washington, giving them complete information about the situation in South and Central Asia. . Now complicated situations have become for America and its allies. These countries do not like the Taliban and are reluctant to recognize it. But it is well known that contact with the Taliban will have to be maintained, if not limited, or else there will be an existential crisis for the citizens of Afghanistan, battered by poverty and war.
When the Taliban first took control of Afghanistan between 1996 and 2001, only three countries – Pakistan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia – recognized that government. This time Pakistan and China are proactively advocating for the Taliban, that this has now changed and ignoring the Taliban can have dire consequences for neighboring countries and the international world. Qatar’s foreign minister met with Afghan Prime Minister Mullah Mohamed Hassan Akhund in Kabul on Sunday. This was the first visit to Kabul by a senior official of any foreign government. Although $ 1.1 billion in aid has been announced for Afghanistan by the international society so far, but more needs to be done to handle this country. India has also said that it stood with Afghanistan for the last 20 years and still is.
