In a massive global embarrassment for Pakistan, the United States blocked the appointment of a new Pakistan ambassador due to possible terror links. US Congressman Scott Perry has opposed the proposed appointment of Masood Khan as Pakistani envoy to the US. Perry wrote a stinging letter to US President Joe Biden against Pakistan's decision calling Khan a terror sympathizer who praised terror organizations and terrorists like Hizbul Mujahideen and Burhan Wani. Mr Perry requested President Biden to reject Masood Khan as the next ambassador.
In the letter, Perry wrote that Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's nomination of a bona fide terrorist sympathizer working to undermine America's interests in the region as well as the security of Indian allies can only be described as a lack of judgment at best. He said that Mr Imran Khan's decision demonstrates Islamabad’s unmitigated contempt for the United States at worst.
