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.
China = Manufacturing economy
USA = Consumer economy

Please have a look at how those economic realities impact each country including Pakistan. Simply check economic reports.

I explained to you before that why China cannot be a substitute of USA to many countries around the world.

I am not sure about cultural appeal of China either. How many speak and understand Chinese to begin with? Chinese also have Western lifestyle. You will see much the same in this respect.

WE need to be realistic in our assessments of global developments.

USA can choose to reassess its relationship with Pakistan. WE should keep our diplomatic channels open. Simple.

USA needs to focus on it's people not waste world's time with none sense , we assisted on Afghanistan don't turn it in to drama

USA left Afghanistan after wasting 20 trillion dollars , China simply focused on working hard they were not chasing boogey man

Ghani and weak policies wasted USA's objectives , Pakistan already suggested to USA to not get stuck into a area where money gets wasted

Yeah, but give preference to China.
Or even US where our interests converge.

Exactly. US is Pak's largest export destination but not China.

What does Manufacturing and Consumer economy have to do with anything?

China has more consumers than USA has.

Besides that, China will have a larger economy than USA in the near future. Things are moving East.
Hardly anyone can speak Mandarin language.
English because it is the language of business.
But we can do trade with China than USA.

Even Saudi Arabia does more trade with China than USA when it comes to selling oil.
Most of Pakistani imports are Chinese products.

MG

China has not surpassed US economy in nominal terms but large manufacturing base is the same reason why she'd ever surpass US.

US is one of the largest oil producing countries, why would they even need KSA oil?

  • 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.

What da funk is wrong with these Pakistani fo idiots-).whey they even use word pressure in their idiotic statments

I hope America now see Pakistan without the lens of Afghanistan, its time to revise the relationship based on mutual Interest minus Afghanistan.

Seeing some of the comments here, kinda remind me of this...

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"...


the tragedy is that those who point towards this ghulami are themselves bitten by it. these people sitting on tv they know they've got a chance to lecture people think of themselves intellect gods.
how can they point out a govt is dictated by firangis, when a common man is still under their influence after 74 years? we have the habit of criticizing others and never look at ourselves.

a sane mind never target people and humiliate them rather criticize system.
a sane mind never talk big and understand the problem behind an issue and always provide solution.
a sane mind is one who bring the problem to light and does not bark on others, then what is the difference between so called intellectual sitting on a tv and a common man.

they are self claimed intellectuals or are brought into light by the tv channels to sell their air time.

would this nation ever realize what and where everything went wrong.

It's the fucking bastards who have been throwing tantrums like a whore for the last 20 years. We just need to downgrade our relationship with them. Doesn't matter how long you wait, a pig will remain a pig. and pigs are haram.

They are a superpower, they can do what they want. Pakistan has a smaller economy than most US states.

A direct conflict with US would be detrimental for Pakistan although many people would believe that we are in direct conflict with US. Our relationships with US should be cordial in alignment of our national interests but we should strive to end our dependence on US for our defense needs and our economy. Any country who is dependent on another country for defense matters will always be at the receiving end.
We should strive to connect better in this region where we cannot change our neighbors and where most of our presence matters.

I dont understand what is so surprising about this statement? Weren't we all expecting this once US withdrawal was complete?
If one chooses to be an Ostrich with its head in the sand, than one can do nothing but otherwise the writing was on the wall all along.

Why can't have a better relations with both?
Depends on the other side as well. pakistani civil and military leadership, from mushi onwards, presented their collective behinds to USA on a dish and still got kicked hard. the other country will do what is best for them. we have no choice in the matter.

Am sure like "do more" how long is the piece of string and now they want to play the same game with the Taliban.

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.

Pakistan have served the US interests like a school boy and its time to move on. US never have appreciated us and its hint of blame game and Pakistan needs to be firm on his interests. Best we got out of this is, the US is out of the Afghanistan and one of the unruly border is much safer and that's some achievement for Pakistan itself.



Gosh we live in this region and of course we will have our own interests and they will always come first. Pakistan can only consider any US interest after considering their own first and every country in the world is the same and Pakistan is no exception to that rule and we are not a US colony.

I was disappointed with the IK when he lowered Pakistan to Indian level on the CNN interview. We want our relationship with the US like US have got with the UK not what the US have got with the India. Pakistan have fought wars for the US interests and security like the UK have, what Indian have done for the US other then stealing the US jobs, wish Trump was still in power. US may not recognise at this moment and for the foreseeable time Pakistan sacrifices but then there will never going to be another time between us. Pakistan should go ahead in next 3 months and recognise along with few other countries the Taliban government as soon as they induct at least one female member in their cabinet. Pakistan must also closed down all the air corridors publicly for military use as soon as Blinken reassessment is complete and we know the results already to put an end to over the horizon crap like the NASR put cold water on the cold start doctrine. We need to show the US middle finger once for all, as for far too long we keep on giving in to their demands. Hostility in their congress towards us is just never ending despite the cutting of all the aid they think we owe them actually we don't. Just don't come back to us again with your bloody security and terrorism concerns just from now on live with it and have sleepless nights. Good bye America.

Yeah you will always be disappointed even if IK makds everything free. Chawwaal log

They’re reassessing the previous reassessments based on the reassessments in the prior years.
Welcome to the $hit show of foreign policy ever since Reagan’s years.
