At a reception for the Democratic congressional campaign committee on Saturday in Los Angeles, US Vice President Joe Biden referred to Pakistan as “one of the most dangerous states that holds nuclear weapons without any cohesion.”

“This is a guy (Xi Jinping) who understands what he wants but has an enormous, enormous array of problems. How do we handle that? How do we handle that relative to what’s going on in Russia? And what I think is maybe one of the most dangerous nations in the world: Pakistan. Nuclear weapons without any cohesion,” said Biden.

The Shehbaz Sharif administration’s efforts to strengthen ties with the US may have suffered as a result of these comments. According to ANI, Biden stated at the event that the US had a tremendous opportunity to transform the situation in the second quarter of the twenty-first century.

These remarks were made two days after the US National Security Strategy was made public. The 48-page paper doesn’t mention Pakistan at all.

The Biden administration issued the crucial policy document that Congress had demanded on Wednesday, highlighting the threat that both China and Russia represent to the US.

“We will prioritize maintaining an enduring competitive edge over the PRC while constraining a still profoundly dangerous Russia,” it added.

According to the National Security Strategy, China and Russia, which earlier this year during the Beijing Winter Olympics established a “no-limits relationship,” are progressively aligning but the problems they present are different.
