Adil Najam, Dean of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, was interviewed for a recent article on a phone call between U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and newly-elected Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan. The two countries have seemingly contradicted each other on whether terrorism was discussed during the call.
From the text of the article:
Adil Najam, dean, Pardee School of Global Studies, Boston University, said on Twitter: “The latest storm-in-a-tea cup about who said what in Imran Khan-Pompeo call is comical but also pertinent. A good metaphor for how relations have always been. What U.S. believes it has said, Pakistan does not believe it has heard. And, vice versa.”
Adil Najam is the inaugural dean of the Pardee School and a professor of international relations and also of earth and environment at Boston University. He was a co-author for the Third and Fourth Assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC); work for which the IPCC was awarded the 2007 Nobel Prize for advancing the public understanding of climate change science.
