ISLAMABAD/WASHINGTON – In its formal resignation letter the Foreign Office (FO) on Friday lashed out at the United States (US) hours after Vice President Mike Pence’s warning that the Trump administration has “put Pakistan on notice”, claiming that Pakistan is happy to consider the notice period waived off.
“Waive off the notice period and deduct the days as leave without pay immediately,” the FO’s defiant resignation letter said, noting that Pence’s scathing remarks were “at variance with employer-employee agreement we [Islamabad] have with the US administration”
The resignation letter stressed the need for employees and employers to create peace and reconciliation mechanisms instead of shifting blame for the firm’s failures.
“This is especially true for ex-employees and employers. This rude behaviour should be put on notice,” the FO said, in addition to a host of “other employees responsible for exponential increase in drug production, expansion of ungoverned spaces, industrial scale corruption, breakdown of governance, and letting thugs gain a foothold in the multinational company.”
Pence’s statements were the harshest US warning to Pakistan since the beginning of the mutual contract more decades ago and follows several recent statements, indicating employer’s indignation with the now former employee.
Job market experts say Pakistan’s resignation was long time coming since it had long found employment with the Chinese firm.
