Pakistan’s most important partner is China rather than the United States and Beijing allows Islamabad to exercise an independent foreign policy, an independent political analyst and peace activist in London says.
Writer and journalist Adam Garrie said in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday that Pakistan also continues to develop good ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran who now share a common enemy in the form of the United States.
Garrie made the remarks when asked if Pakistan is responsible for America’s failure in Afghanistan, and why US President Donald Trump is mad at Pakistan.
Trump said in his first tweet of 2018 that Washington had “foolishly given Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid over the last 15 years.”
“And they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools,” wrote the US president on Monday. “They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!”
