Diplomatic relations with Pakistan

2011-05-25

Louis Delvoie, a Senior Fellow at the Queen’s University School of Policy Studies and a former Canadian ambassador to Pakistan, is available to talk about the diplomatic issues Pakistan is facing in the wake of the death of Osama bin Laden.

“The relationship between the United States and Pakistan has always been tenuous and flawed because the two countries have been pursuing different national interests. They have found it convenient to be allied but always with second thoughts and reservations. The latest episode with the killing of Osama bin Laden simply brings these faults lines to the fore but the two countries will remain condemned to be allies – whether they like it or not,” says Mr. Delvoie, a career diplomat who served in Pakistan from 1991-94.
