ISLAMABAD: US Senator Lindsey Graham says the decision by the Biden Administration to withdraw all forces and not stay engaged with Pakistan is a major disaster in the making, even worse than the blunder in Iraq.

He said in a series of tweets that it was stunning to hear that US President Joe Biden hasn’t reached out to Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan regarding the US-Pakistan relationship and Afghanistan.

“How do we expect our withdrawal from Afghanistan to be effective without coordinating with Pakistan? Clearly the Biden Administration believes that our problems in Afghanistan are behind us,” he added.
