In spite of the existing situation in Afghanistan and the key role played by Pakistan it is unfortunate that the White House remain indifferent to the Pakistani leadership.

The Prime Minister’s office has taken a strong view to the fact that despite all efforts by Pakistan to establish a healthy line of communication between White House, it is unable to see a meaningful reciprocity.

This portrays the diplomatic overtures of Pakistan in a poor light which unfortunately remain at the mercy of the immature understanding of the White Huse staff advising the US President. You are thus expected to take adequate measures in ensuring that enough diplomatic steps are undertaken to guarantee the strategic relevance of Pakistan in all diplomatic forums.
