The spokesperson reiterated that the US is in no way involved in the process or in any discussion between the parties.
“I will just reiterate that we are in no way involved in the process or discussions between the parties.”
Psaki, while reminding that they typically do not offer predictions and that they “can offer no real analysis of what’s happening in Islamabad beyond just reiterating their belief that the parties should work together to resolve difference differences through peaceful dialogue and ways to strengthen Pakistan’s democracy and rule of law.”
