The United States (U.S.) will reassess its relationship with Pakistan in the coming weeks.

The purpose of the reassessment is to decide about Afghanistan’s future and what role the U.S. would play in it.

This was revealed by the U.S. Secretary of State, Antony John Blinken, on Monday.

Blinken’s comments were made in the first public hearing in the U.S. Congress since the Taliban‘s takeover of the Afghan capital.

During the address, Blinken remarked that the South Asian country has a “multiplicity of interests” that are in conflict with the U.S.’s interests in the region.

Blinken added that the U.S.’s relationship with Pakistan involves several different routes and approaches.

These range from the U.S.’s approach to counterterrorism, deciding the future of Afghanistan and deciding the status of the Taliban.

After this remark, Blinken was questioned by the U.S. lawmakers whether the U.S. would reassess its relationship with Pakistan.

To this, the U.S. Secretary of State replied in affirmative and said that the U.S. administration would indeed reassess its relationship with Pakistan in the coming “days and weeks ahead.”

To analyze its future relationship with Pakistan, the U.S. would judge Pakistan’s role in countering terrorism over the past 20 years.

The U.S. would also look at the aspects of how it wants its relationship with the South Asian country in the future.
