After US President Joe Biden’s “Pakistan is one of the most dangerous nations in the world” remarks, America once again reiterated that it expects sustained action against terrorist groups from Pakistan.
At a media briefing on Monday (local time), Vedant Patel told reporters, “We seek a strong partnership with Pakistan on counter-terrorism and expect sustained action against all militant and terrorist groups. And we look forward to the cooperative efforts to eliminate all regional and global terrorist threats. Earlier, US President Biden said Pakistan may be one of the “most dangerous nations in the world” during an address in California while speaking about the changing global geopolitical situation.
The US president reasoned that he thought so as Pakistan has “nuclear weapons without cohesion”. According to the transcript, available on the White House website, of Biden’s address at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee reception in California, he said:” And what I think is maybe one of the most dangerous nations in the world: Pakistan. “Nuclear weapons without any cohesion.”
Pakistan summoned the US Ambassador, Donald Blome, for clarification after President Biden described Pakistan as “one of the most dangerous countries in the world.” The US on Sunday (local time) backtracked on President Joe Biden’s alarm over Pakistan’s ability to secure its nuclear arsenal and said that the country can secure its nukes.
Patel said, “I will reiterate again that the US has always viewed a secure and prosperous Pakistan as critical to US interests and more broadly to US values, our long-standing cooperation.” Pakistan has always sold its false narrative of being the victim of terror. However, its doublespeak has been caught many times. Moreover, many of the terrorist groups were deliberately created by the Pakistani state to serve its purposes.
