What are the processes that have led the US Republican president, Donald Trump to enunciate a much tougher policy toward Pakistan?
In this interview with Sindh TV, US based journalist Nafisa Hoodbhoy reveals why after 16 years of involvement in Afghanistan, the US administration has decided to enunciate an Afghan policy that includes both Pakistan and India.
It explores how the Trump administration’s policy decision that India do more business with Afghanistan is a departure from former president Barak Obama’s Af-Pak policy, that focused single handedly on the two countries.
Moreover, it discusses how Trump’s refusal to lay a time table for the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan changes the dynamics in a war that completes its 16th year on September 11.
