Pakistan’s Countrywide Safety Advisor Dr Moeed Yusuf has expressed his resentment above the point that the US President has not but spoken to Primary Minister Imran Khan ever considering the fact that he arrived into workplace. His desperation was definitely pitiful. Mr Yusuf warned the US leadership in an ‘intimidating’ method that his leadership does have ‘other options’ if the Biden administration continues to give a chilly shoulder. He appeared to remind the US management that they ended up ought to be Pakistan’s good friends, not masters.

In a big setback, Pakistan’s ask for to sign up for the UN Protection Council meeting, which was held to focus on the upcoming of Afghanistan posts US withdrawal, was turned down inspite of the truth that Pakistan is a major stakeholder in Afghanistan. Even the US didn’t aid owing to Islamabad’s refusal to very clear up the mess that they have remaining powering in Afghanistan.

In spite of having fatigued all its energies and compromising its self-integrity to fulfil the US goals considering the fact that the cold war period to date, Pakistan has under no circumstances been equipped to build a romance with the US-primarily based on mutual have faith in and respect. The US has always scapegoated Pakistan with a by no means-ending need to “do additional.”

The parasitic behaviour versus Pakistan by the US is a single motive for the by no means-ending have faith in deficit concerning the two countries. Pakistan’s continued dependency on the US for economic and strategic interests is a different. Pakistan has under no circumstances utilized the ‘other options’ for the stated applications in the correct perception of the time period.

The political instability and incompetent regimes have also ruined the national integrity to the core. Pakistan could not form its overseas policy to a amount of world acceptance. As an alternative of adopting a well balanced approach, Pakistan selected to stand on the incorrect facet devoid of anticipating the implications down the road.

Notwithstanding the fact that Pakistan maintains an iron bond with China, it have to be ensured that this connection does not include to nonetheless yet another hardly ever-ending dependency. Pakistan has to revisit its international plan goals. A sturdy method is desperately needed to investigate many solutions to guarantee that the state will no more time be utilised as a scapegoat for anyone’s interests.

It is large time to realise that the US is no longer the sole superpower presented the humiliation it has suffered in Afghanistan. In the ever-changing world wide situation, a single state on your own can not make your mind up the future of the planet. There are many gamers in the video game. Pakistan will have to not depend on any solitary region to a amount in which they commence exploiting its dependency.

Persons at the helm of affairs will have to formulate a vigorous counter-narrative towards the propaganda strategies introduced by the hostile international locations against Pakistan. This sort of destructive campaigns have dented the national image globally. Pakistan has been portrayed as a peace spoiler. A in depth media tactic is paramount to propagate the national narrative around the globe.

There is an urgent want for this realization that political polarisation at home, the evil of dependency and a frail international coverage will hardly ever receive a excellent identify for the region. Pakistan will proceed to be regarded as a unsuccessful condition whose puppet learn decides its fate.
