DUSHANBE (Dispatches) -- Tajikistan has summoned the U.S. ambassador over the offensive remarks President Joe Biden made about Tajik people during his recent visit to Pennsylvania. It came after Biden said people in Tajikistan would also be “hanging in the well of the wheel” if the U.S. pulled up a C-130 Hercules aircraft from the country. He was referring to a tragic incident that occurred at Kabul airport in the early days of the evacuation operation when Afghans seeking to flee the country tried to climb aboard a cargo jet as it rolled down the runway.
