“It’s for a very specific and narrow purpose, we don’t see ourselves building a broad relationship with Pakistan. And we have no interest in returning to the days of hyphenated India, Pakistan. That’s not where we are. That’s not where we’re going to be,” she said while speaking at the Ananta Aspen Centre in Mumbai.


I guess the messaging from the other side is fairly clear.

Wendy Sherman was a social worker and then got involved with the Clinton campaign and was rewarded with posts in the State Department. She was put in her place, when the Chinese refused to meet with her.
You can bet we care, a lot in fact. When she visits Pakistan, you will see just by the protocol given to her. Despite the fact that she is only the deputy Sec. of State.

Neither are we. Only the likes of Billawal Zirdari and Mariyum Safdar and their challa would be interested.

On topic if this is indeed her statement and not twisted by Indian media, than should be stopped in our tracks and not welcome in Pakistan at all. I mean if this is the way US wants than so be it.

It is a direct quote.

Their loss. Last couple of decades are a proof when we saw similar antics and the outcome is for everyone to see.

Few things:

1- She was addressing Indian audience. So she said what was politically suitable for the situation.
2- US isn’t irrelevant like some people want to believe to make themselves happy. There’s no Russia, China Pakistan and whatever country block alliance or anything. Just some convergence of interest.
3- Her statements aren’t encouraging, Pakistan should cancel the meeting with her and ask for explanation.

1. Not the best way to start a visit but I’m not sure she has the emotional intelligence to think that deeply.
2. It’s an Indian audience.
3. Her reception in Pakistan won’t be as nice, prior comments by the Secretary of State to his visit showed this.
4. I can understand why the Chinese didn’t meet her.

Indian audience or not that was a rather brazen statement.

But I guess at least there is no doubt as to where the US stands.
