WASHINGTON: Pakistan’s role in empowering the Taliban is a victory for the hardliners in the country’s government, said a senior US lawmaker, asserting that the events unfolding in Afghanistan and the role Islamabad is playing in Kabul they are not sending a good message. India.
Republican Senator Marco Rubio, during a congressional hearing on Afghanistan on Thursday, said several US administrations were guilty of ignoring Pakistan’s role in helping the Taliban regroup, while other US senators expressed concern about “double treatment. “from Islamabad.
“India… I know it was announced today that there will be a Quad meeting quite soon, which is a good development, except that the Indo-Pacific region, if you are India, you are looking at this and you say” If the United States allowed Pakistan to undo your position, “he said.
“Because Pakistan’s role in all of this – and I think multiple administrations are guilty of ignoring it. Pakistan’s role in empowering the Taliban is ultimately a victory for the pro-Taliban hardliners in the Pakistani government, ”Rubio told Blinken.
US President Joe Biden will host the first Quad Summit in person on September 24 in Washington, which will be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.
The four leaders would discuss promoting a free and open Indo-Pacific, addressing the climate crisis and deepening their ties and promoting practical cooperation in areas such as fighting Covid-19, White House press secretary Jen said Monday. Psaki.
“They (the Indians) have to be looking at this and saying if America could have, you know, a third-rate power like Pakistan to unravel its goals, what chance do they have of taking on China? So, I think this leaves us in a terrible situation, ”Rubio said during the congressional hearing on Afghanistan called by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
He said that all these years, as the Taliban suffered casualties, they enjoyed a safe haven in Pakistan.
“They were able to go there to rest, to recondition, to train, to recruit. And so, in short, even before the withdrawal, we had a terrible status quo. The security forces, a small number of American forces, you know, they continued to die, ”he said.
Senator Mike Rounds said that Pakistan was considering the Taliban government as a partner in countering India.
Rounds said the Iranian president has openly called this a US military defeat and is considering working with the Taliban.
In his remarks, Senator Robert Menendez, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, spoke about “Pakistan’s double treatment” and “providing a safe haven” for the Taliban.
Senator James Risch told Blinken that the United States must understand Pakistan’s role in this whole issue.
Blinken told angry US lawmakers on Monday that the United States will look at the role Pakistan has played in the past 20 years after lawmakers voiced outrage over Pakistan’s “deceptive” role in Afghanistan after 9/11 and demanded that Washington reassess your relationship with Islamabad.
US lawmakers also urged the Biden administration to reassess Pakistan’s status as a major non-NATO ally.
The Taliban seized power in Afghanistan on August 15, two weeks before the United States completed its troop withdrawal.
