Wrote in a thread the other day that US will slap sanctions on Pakistan. They did this in 90s, they'll do it again. Pakistan was stupid enough to believe them and lost 80k+ people and $150b+ for nothing.
Thats why I want Pakistan and Saudi Arabia to ditch USA for China.

I want the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to raise up China.
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation can be a useful platform to improve its status to the Muslim World from a diplomatic perspective.
Or at least give preference to China when it comes to trade and other agreements.

Better to raise up ourselves, and if they so choose, the OIC countries should help raise up each other.

China does not champion Islamic causes but OBOR which stretches all the way to Europe. There is much difference between these themes.

You have misunderstood me.
I never said nor do I expect China to champion Muslim causes.
But China is a useful alternative to USA, scientifically, culturally, and human resources as well.

SCO would be more useful if it didn't have Republic of India in it.

So disappointing assessment from the current Pakistani GOP w.r.t legitimacy of Taliban Govt... I mean still waiting on to recognize the legitimacy of newly formed Afghan Govt... it is so rightly pointed out by Mr. Orya Maqbool Jan that Pakistani GOP is STILL dictated by the farangis..."Zehni Ghulaami se shayed hum kabhi bhi na nikal payein"...

He's gone mad in this old age. Saw his youtube channel by mistake a few days ago; he is too pro-Taliban, blames Pakistan for every other thing.
Well, I don't get people still invite the likes of him and Hoodbhoy and consider them an authority on every social, political, economic, religious and foreign affair. One was bureaucrate, and the other is a teacher but they'll pass comments like nobody has better command on subject than them. One is right-wing apologist and the other is a libtard- two sides of the same coin.

Well that’s a good thing if it doesn’t champion Islamic causes as we’ve already seen the results of those that do or want it modified. I rather have a Chinese than an Anglo-Saxon.

I agree with you. I would rather trust the Chinese than people from the west.

The western nations are very treacherous and double-dealing, like the Mohammad Mossadegh removal.

Almost impossible to Champion Muslim causes, when Muslim countries are not united themselves. So that's that.

  • US reassessment of relationship "surprising" as Pakistan played positive role in Afghan peace process: FO.
  • Pakistan not under pressure to recognise or not to recognise Taliban govt; Islamabad "does not come under pressure", FO says.
  • Pakistan played a critical role in helping the US degrade Al Qaeda’s core leadership in Afghanistan, it adds.
The United States announcing it will reassess its relationship with Pakistan is "surprising" as we have played a positive role in the Afghan peace process, Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar said Saturday.

The spokesperson, responding to a question at the weekly press briefing, said there is no pressure on Pakistan to recognise or not to recognise the Taliban government, and Islamabad does "not take any pressure".

"We will take independent decisions in line with our interests," the spokesperson clarified.

In response to the comments made by US lawmakers and Secretary of State Antony Blinken during recent Congressional hearings on Afghanistan, he said Pakistan has noted that they were "not in line with the close cooperation between Pakistan and the United States".


The spokesperson said the comments were "surprising" as Pakistan had played an imperative role in the recent evolving situation in Afghanistan.

"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," he said.

The spokesperson recalled that Pakistan had played a critical role in helping the US degrade Al Qaeda’s core leadership in Afghanistan, which was the international coalition’s core objective.

"At the same time, Pakistan had always maintained that there was no military solution to the larger Afghan conflict and that a political settlement offered the only plausible pathway to sustainable peace in Afghanistan — a position now shared by the United States," he said.

The spokesperson said that achieving an inclusive political settlement in Afghanistan that represents Afghanistan’s diversity and reflects the gains made by the country remains a shared objective for Pakistan and the United States.

"We look forward to building on this convergence while also strengthening other aspects of a broad-based and constructive relationship," the spokesperson added.

'Washington will reassess relationship with Pakistan'
On September 14, US Secretary of State Blinken had said that Washington will reassess its relationship with Pakistan in the coming days.

According to Reuters, the US had made it clear to Pakistan that it did not want Islamabad to recognise the Taliban government until it doesn't give women their due rights and allows Afghans who want to leave the country, to do so.

In the first public hearing in Congress about Afghanistan since last month's collapse of the US-backed Afghan government, US Secretary of State Blinken had told the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee that Pakistan has a "multiplicity of interests, some that are in conflict with ours."

"It is one that involved hedging its bets constantly about the future of Afghanistan, it's one that's involved harboring members of the Taliban ... It is one that's also involved in different points cooperation with us on counterterrorism," Blinken had said.

Asked by lawmakers if it is time for Washington to reassess its relationship with Pakistan, Blinken had said the administration would soon be doing that.



No issues, the US should go ahead, these dumb losers are delayed learners, maybe after 20 years, they will realize their mistake.

Why prefer one over the other? Why can't have a better relations with both? Should learn from mistakes of 90s and post 9/11- not to ever take sides again and not to jump in someone else's war for few fvcking dollars, and more importantly, commercial interests always take precedence when it comes to geopolitics or human rights.

Yeah, but give preference to China.
