“Absolutely not”. There is no way to allow bases or actions from Pakistani territory in Afghanistan. Absolutely not,” Dawn said in an interview with Jonathan Swan of HBO Axios.

The Pakistani Prime Minister’s remarks follow the question of whether Pakistan will allow the US government to have a CIA in the country to carry out cross-border anti-terrorism missions against al-Qaeda, ISIL, or the Taliban.
Axios is HBO’s documentary news program in which Axios journalists work with HBO directors to produce a comprehensive show spanning technology, media, business, and politics. The series features former US President Donald Trump, now US President Joe Biden, Sundar Pichai, Elon Musk, Mary Barra, Andrew Ian, and Kamala Harris.
Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmoud Qureshi has previously ruled out providing US military bases for counter-terrorism operations in Afghanistan. The Taliban welcomes the Pakistani government’s decision not to hand over its military bases to the US armed forces after withdrawing from Afghanistan.
“We welcome the decision of the Pakistani authorities not to make their bases available to the US armed forces,” Taliban spokesman Sohail Shaheen told the country by telephone from Doha. “The request of the US armed forces to establish a base in Pakistan is unjustified and Pakistan is responding appropriately,” Shahin said.
Talks about military bases in the region are also reportedly deadlocked.
“Several US officials (told newspapers) talking to Pakistan so far have stalled. Others say options remain on the table and a deal is possible,” the New York Times report said earlier this week.
Dawn said the secretary of state dismissed the report as baseless and explained that the government would never deploy US military bases or allow drone strikes in Pakistan.
At a cabinet briefing, Information Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussein also ruled out that US air force bases in the country would say that all these facilities are used in Pakistan itself.
According to The News International, the United States is in talks with Pakistan and other regional countries to cooperate on future operations in the war-torn country to control militancy.
Therefore, our foreign policy is unknown since the founding of Pakistan. In this case, people are reluctant to form a final opinion. There was a time when the Pakistanis sent their first Prime Minister’s plane to Moscow. Then he suddenly realized that the plane had reached Washington and we were told we were turning “right” when we were flying “left”.
We were at Wright for a long time. When our military rulers went to Washington, they were received in a very splendid manner, examples of which are still given today, but the fruits of our acceptance did not help us at a difficult time, and the Seventh Fleet could not reach us for help. Even our house has been destroyed.
When Zulfikar Ali Bhutto came to power, he told his people that the United States was responsible for our problems and once he arrived, he turned to unite and left the Muslim countries, which resulted in his execution.
Then, in Afghanistan’s war against jihad and terrorism, we were again America’s favorite ally. We fought against America at the expense of the peace and order of our country, but whenever America received help from another country, we forgot about it. Today we are at a crossroads again.
We must decide what foreign policy our future generations will pursue. The United States has set a deadline for a full withdrawal from Afghanistan on September 11. He quickly evacuated bases in Afghanistan, but Afghanistan’s future political landscape remains unclear. In addition to hosting 4 million Afghan refugees in Pakistan over the last 40 years, it has more than 70,000 civilian and military witnesses.
More than 150.150 billion has been lost in the US withdrawal, but instead of talking about Pakistan’s interests, they are pressuring Afghanistan to provide a base for operations against the Taliban. The United States must undermine Pakistan’s relations with China to protect its economic interests. That is impossible and would be against Pakistan’s interests.
The US president has not even said goodbye to the head of government of his most important ally in the region. Under these circumstances, Pakistan’s prudence is a matter of time and circumstances.
The allocation of the US base means open hostility to the Afghan Taliban. Pakistan has barely recovered from the war in Afghanistan, and no Pakistani wants to be in the same quagmire again.
In response to a question from an American television correspondent allegedly sent by US agents, Prime Minister Imran Khan flatly refused to give the US a base. When the moderator repeated his question, Prime Minister Imran Khan said (Absolutely not) and he was taken aback. Prime Minister Imran Khan’s refusal is also a direct message to the US that Pakistan is no longer ready for Door Moore. The US has also raised objections to relations between Pakistan and China. Sometimes he points to the C-pack, sometimes he describes Chinese investment as a disaster for Pakistan. Finally, some unscrupulous ministers also tried to take the American route, which the Pakistani people did not like.
Now the United States and its Western allies have resorted to bigotry. He urged Pakistan to choose between China and the US, which is not at all profitable for a developing country like Pakistan. America’s attitude towards us is not so enviable as to leave everything at their behest.
On the other hand, China has always sided with Pakistan. Whether Kashmir or FATF, International Human Rights Forum or UN Security Council, which has always supported Pakistan as one of its brothers. Pakistan’s interests are always protected. Pakistan is also on the side of China in international forums.
Building good relations with everyone is very important for Pakistan’s foreign policy changes in recent years. Pakistan does not want to damage relations with the United States, nor is it part of Pakistan’s foreign policy, but will not damage relations with China under any pressure. Prime Minister Imran Khan also gave an interview to Chinese television in which the Prime Minister briefed the US, its allies and China on Pakistan’s foreign policy.
Thus, Pakistan stands, stands, and will stand with China. The Prime Minister also sent a message to the United States and the West that Pakistan cannot universalize its foreign policy under pressure. This is also a clear message to the Chinese government that Pakistan’s government and institutions will not be instruments of other countries against China’s interests. However, putting pressure on Pakistan is unacceptable under these circumstances.
Especially when the US and China, Pakistan’s enemies in the region, formed an alliance against China. India is Pakistan’s enemy which will harm Pakistan’s interests. A few days ago the source of the bomb explosion in Lahore was discovered by the Indian secret service.
While Prime Minister Imran Khan fully expressed people’s moods while conveying his message of full support for China, he also told the United States that if you don’t need us, then we don’t need you either.
On the other hand, those who spread rumors and conspire about differences between Pakistani institutions inside and outside Pakistan are also informed that Pakistani civilian and military institutions are on the same side. Prime Minister Imran Khan made a clear and transparent statement.
He has done so in his National Assembly speech. Moreover, the meeting of the parliamentary committee has ratified it. The meeting was attended by the entire military and political leadership.
