Washington: The United States once again reiterated the fact the civilian government in Pakistan continued to be the “primary interlocutor” in the relationship between the two countries.

Last week, Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the US, during which he met senior officials of the Biden administration as well. The time of the visit was another point of discussion, with many people wondering why the Army Chief went to Washington at the tail end of his term.
