On Monday, the State Department spokesperson of the United States, Vedant Patel, conveyed that the United States had confidence in the ability of Pakistan to secure its nuclear arsenal. The statement came after the President of the United States Joe Biden termed Pakistan as the most dangerous country which pushed Islamabad to summon the ambassador of the US.
During a private fundraiser of the Democratic Party, President Biden said the nuclear weapons of Pakistan were without any cohesion. On Saturday, the White House had released a statement which said that the US President wanted a prosperous and stable Pakistan. However, the uncalled-for remarks of Biden had done the damage, and Islamabad summoned the US envoy and demanded an explanation.
Prime Minister of Pakistan Shehbaz Sharif tweeted that Pakistan was a responsible nuclear state and did not compromise on safety measures. Foreign Minister of Pakistan Bilawal Bhutto stated that remarks by Biden should not damage the ties, and the president did not pass the statement in an official event.
