At the same time, referring to future attempts by the Taliban to occupy Afghanistan through war, he said, “We will seal the border because now we can, but Pakistan does not want a conflict. Secondly, we are one of the refugees.” I don’t want to come again. ‘
On recognizing the Taliban’s occupation, Imran Khan said, “Pakistan will only recognize a government that is elected by the people of Afghanistan.”
Two important questions arise here. The first is the basis on which Pakistan now wants to build its new relationship with the United States. And second, is the Taliban’s announcement not to recognize the government in Kabul a possible change in Pakistan’s past policies?
Will Pakistan maintain any strategic relationship with the United States after the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan?
As Pakistan denies their bases for the USA, In his interview, Prime Minister Imran Khan said, “I don’t know. I never thought that Pakistan should have a strategic alliance with the United States.”
“I do not know what kind of military relationship this will be after the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, but for now the relationship must be based on the common goal of finding a political solution in Afghanistan before the US leaves,” he said.
According to Analysts, for its purposes, the United States would like Pakistan to distance itself from China and come out of projects like CPEC, but in return, the United States is not ready to provide any kind of assistance to Pakistan.
“I assure you that we will do everything except military action against the Taliban,” Prime Minister Imran Khan said.

Foreign Minister’s Official Statement About Giving Pakistani Air Bases to the USA
On Tuesday, Pakistan ruled out any chance that it would enable the US, in neighbouring Afghanistan, to build a military facility, or to perform drone operations.
The Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi Pakistan officially denies their bases for the USA. He informed the Senate or the House that there was no such mechanism in the so-called battle against terrorism with Washington, the long-time partner of Islamabad.
“Let this House and the country of Pakistan be witnesses to my statement that there will be no US bases in Pakistan under Prime Minister Imran Khan,” Qureshi added.
“Forget about the past,” he said, alluding to the US base in Pakistan claimed during the Cold War against the old Soviet Union.
“We won’t allow the cinematic use of drones, nor do we want to supervise your drones. This is the government’s very clear position,” asserted the highest diplomat.
The explanation came amid rumours that the two partners were discussing a new settlement to facilitate future US counter-terrorism in war-torn Afghanistan in line with the 2020 Doha Peace Agreement between the Taliban and the Western armies.
Qureshi called the reports “un-basic” and “Specular.”
One day after Russia’s special envoy, Zamir Kabulov stated that Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, the Central Asian neighbours, will not allow Washington to lay military sites on its ground.
Under the Doha accord, by 11 September this year, about 2,500 US soldiers and more than 7,000 NATO forces will be removed from Afghanistan. In return, the Taliban will avoid the use of Afghan land by terrorist groups and people, in particular the US, to endanger the safety of another country.
