Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan defended US President Joe Biden’s decision for the mismanaged backout of American troops from Afghanistan, saying that it was a “sensible” move and Biden is being “unfairly criticised” for it. “There was so much unfair criticism of President Biden, and what he did was the most sensible thing to do,” Khan stated.  Khan’s defense of the American President comes a month after he condemned the US for expecting Pakistan to “clean up the mess” it left behind in Afghanistan.

“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 not one,” Khan before Kabul fell to the Taliban. Khan himself has been a vocal arbiter of Biden’s decision to pull troops from Afghan soil. In an interview , he blamed American withdrawal for diminishing the influence Pakistan had over the Taliban.

“Given that the United States gave a date of withdrawal, from then onward, our leverage diminished on the Taliban. And the reason is that the moment the United States gave a date of exit, the Taliban basically claimed victory. They’re thinking that they won the war. And so, therefore, our ability to influence them diminishes the stronger they feel,” Khan professed.

 Biden has been exposed to strong-worded criticism from opposition politicians in his country and from the international community, who called the pullout “hasty”, and worried about the Taliban’s newfound permissibility after the mismanaged US withdrawal on August 31. Khan also demonstrated doubts on America’s future objectives regarding Afghanistan, and said he wasn’t sure if the country had a rational policy on how to deal with a war-ravaged country. He also called on the US to engage in humanitarian efforts to help refugees, dwell on the important role the country has to play after being in Afghanistan for over 20 years.
