The US prefers India, uses Pakistan to settle Afghan crisis
New Delhi : Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that United States only considers Pakistan to settle their issues with Afghanistan and prefers 'India' when it comes to forming "strategic partnership".
"I think the Americans have decided that India is a strategic partner. Maybe that's why Pakistan is being treated differently. Pakistan is just considered to be useful only in the context of settling this mess," the Prime Minister said during an interaction with the foreign media on Wednesday night, reported Dawn.
He also noted that the US has changed its attitude towards them because of the country's closeness with China.
Pakistan is also disappointed as Joe Biden has not spoken to Pakistan even once since he assumed charges as the President in January.
Pakistan's National Security Adviser Moeed Yusuf recently expressed disappointment over Biden's reluctance to contact Khan despite considering Islamabad as an important country in some critical issues like Afghanistan.
However, the prime minister said he was not really "waiting" for a phone call from the US President. "I keep hearing that President Biden hasn't called me. It's his business. It's not like I am waiting for any phone call," he said while responding to a question.
