US Senator calls Pak's bluff for 'playing on both sides' in Afghanistan

Apr 16, 2021 09:44 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Pakistan has played on both sides of the field in Afghanistan, contributing to the Taliban's success, a senior US senator has reminded his colleagues. The stark indictment of Islamabad came a day after Washington announced plans to withdraw all troops from the war-torn Afghanistan by September 11.

Chairman of Senate Armed Services Committee, Senator Jack Reed, on Thursday, said "a crucial factor contributing immensely to the Taliban's success" has been the inability of the US to "eliminate the sanctuary the Taliban was granted in Pakistan."
