Pakistan expresses dismay over Blinken’s statement

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Thursday came out strongly against comments made by US lawmakers and Secretary of State Antony Blinken during the recent Congressional hearings on Afghanistan, and clearly said that these comments were not in line with the close cooperation between Pakistan and the US.

“This was surprising as Pakistan’s positive role in the Afghan peace process, recent facilitation of the multinational evacuation effort from Afghanistan, and continued support for an inclusive political settlement in Afghanistan have been duly acknowledged, including most recently by the US State Department spokesperson in his briefing of September 15, 2021,” said the Foreign Office spokesman here during the weekly media briefing.
