Sad at the snub meted his way and in turn, his country, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has been inconsolable and is lamenting in front of the world media. Targeting Washington, the Pak PM recently remarked that the US sees Pakistan as “useful” only for clearing the “mess” it has left behind in Afghanistan after 20 years of fighting and prefers India when it comes to forming a “strategic partnership”.
Khan said, “Pakistan is just considered only to be useful in the context of somehow settling this mess which has been left behind after 20 years of trying to find a military solution when there was no one.”
US President Joe Biden hasn’t spoken to Imran Khan, ever since he stepped foot in the White House in January. The cold shoulder has left Imran seething and at the same time miserable. Khan said that since the US decided to have a “strategic partnership” with India, Washington was treating Pakistan differently.
Khan added, “I think the American people have decided that their strategic partner is now India and that is why they are now treating Pakistan differently.”
Ever since the withdrawal process of American troops from Afghanistan began, the Taliban has started a purge process to eliminate the Afghan forces and overthrow the government. The notorious neighbouring country of Pakistan has jumped in as well and started wielding its influence in the region by providing arms and ammunition, despite having a monster in the closet i.e., Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).
While Pakistan is helping the Taliban behind the shadows, it attempts to mislead the world governments by claiming to be a victim of terrorism and thus usurps billions of dollars in funds in the name of fighting the battles against Islamic terrorism.
However, America after its 20-odd years of experience in the subcontinent finally comprehends that taming Pakistan and trying to force it to stop supporting the Taliban is a lost cause, thus the Biden administration has kept the communication to a minimum with Imran Khan.
The biggest reason America has learnt its lesson has been the Modi government which has time and again exposed the true nature of the Pakistan government, which operated by the unholy nexus of the Pakistani Army, ISI and terrorists.
While the USA’s snub must be pinching Khan, another rejection from the United Kingdom has similarly rattled up the entire political machinery of Pakistan.
Reportedly, India has been moved to the amber list in the Covid travel list prepared by the UK government while Pakistan has been kept on the red list. Claiming the division to be biased, Pakistan’s special assistant on health, Faisal Sultan wrote a letter to UK’s health secretary, which was posted by Pakistan’s human rights minister Shireen Mazari on Twitter.
Reply from Dr Faisal Sultan to UK Health Secretary in response to UK govt's "explanation" (C thread) on why Pak is on Red while India has moved to amber! The table exposes claims of UK govt that UK decision based on science & data! Clearly it has been a purely political decision! pic.twitter.com/5rKE8vFaAh

The UK’s red list allows entry only to British residents and some student visa holders, subject to a compulsory quarantine at a government-mandated hotel for 10 days, at the passenger’s own cost of 1,750 pounds each.
Meanwhile, being on the Amber list means that passengers coming from India are exempt from such a government-run quarantine but must fill in the compulsory passenger locator form to provide an address where they would be undergoing the 10-day self-isolation.
Pakistan is being humiliated from all sides but its supreme leader, instead of building up the country from within, is busy cribbing in front of journalists, internationally.
