Dr. Asad Majeed Khan, organized by the Institute of Strategic Studies Islamabad (ISSI).

She asserted: “It is absolutely okay not to have a strategic dialogue with the U.S.” She stated that, by constantly urging the U.S. to engage with the Taliban, or play a lead role in Afghanistan, Pakistan itself is shrinking space for it to take on a leadership role in the region.
