Pakistan may be 'one of the most dangerous nations in the world': Biden

Pakistan may be 'one of the most dangerous nations in the world': Biden

WASHINGTON (92 News) - United States President Joe Biden said Pakistan may be 'one of the most dangerous nations in the world' as the country has 'nuclear weapons without any cohesion'.

He made these remarks while addressing a Democratic congressional campaign committee reception.

Citing Russia and China, Biden was quoted as saying: “And what I think is maybe one of the most dangerous nations in the world: Pakistan. Nuclear weapons without any cohesion. Did anybody think we’d be in a situation where China is trying to figure out its role relative to Russia and relative to India and relative to Pakistan?”

He said the world was changing rapidly and countries were rethinking their alliances. “And the truth of the matter is — I genuinely believe this — that the world is looking to us. Not a joke. Even our enemies are looking to us to figure out how we figure this out, what we do.”

There was a lot at stake, Biden said, emphasising that the US had the capacity to lead the world to a place it had never been before.

Talking about his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, the US president termed him as a man who knew what he wanted but had an '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,” Biden said.
