The US over the Horizon Counterterrorism War from Pakistan. The Taliban accused Pakistan of permitting US drones to use its airspace for strikes on Afghanistan. Pakistan has denied the charges. #USA #Pakistan #Afghanistan #Taliban #ModernDiplomacy #Gravitas

"Pakistan’s Shamsi Airport, located in Washuk, Balochistan, is only 190 km away from the Durand Line, from where American drones can easily monitor Afghanistan entirely, the border areas of Iran and China, and the port of Gwadar. Shamsi Airport, located at an altitude of 340 meters above sea level, has a 3012-meter-long runway for planes. This airport was built in 1992 by the United Arab Emirates in the name of bird hunting, which was then controlled by the Americans from 2001 to 2011. But when relations between American forces and Pakistan became strained in November 2011, Pakistan ordered American forces to withdraw from Shamsi Airport. Now, once again, this airport has been handed over to the American forces under the leadership of the CIA, to monitor Afghanistan, Iran, and East Asia from here."
