WASHINGTON: Frustrated with Pakistan’s duplicity over its relationship with the US, a top American lawmaker has said Pakistan must be held accountable for continuously working against the interests of the US.
“The US has been reluctant to cut ties or meaningfully confront Pakistan over its treachery because the supply line that keeps the coalition fed and equipped in Afghanistan runs through Pakistan,” Republican Congressman Ted Poe said in an op-ed in The Washington Times titled ‘Pakistan’s long history of duplicity’.
“However, this key link does not come free and has even been severed by Pakistan on multiple occasions after violent incidents between their forces and our own,” Poe alleged.
