The United States military has been going after al Qaeda and Taliban operatives in northern Pakistan without the prior approval of the Pakistani government, straining relationships between the two allies.
Joining us on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com to discuss this new policy and its affect on U.S. Pakistani relations tomorrow will be former Pakistani UN Ambassador Munir Akram, who warns that dangerous consequences could be result.
Akram says because it must, of course, defend its nation’s sovereignty, the U.S. military could be pushing the Pakistani army into an alliance with the Afghan Taliban.
“The dangers associated with this move by the U.S. Army are both real and immanent,” Akram says.
“The unilateral incursions by the U.S. into Pakistan seem to have broken the consensus within the Pakistan military to support the U.S. anti terror campaign. Unless reversed, it could lead to an openly hostile relationship between Pakistani and U.S. forces along the border and even result in overt hostilities between them.”
