The subject of this article is the examination of genesis, history of development and evolution of the relations between the United States and Pakistan at different stages of contemporary history in the context of war in Afghanistan. First and foremost, the author reviews the impact of Islamabad’s policy upon the situation in the neighboring Afghanistan during the active phase of the armed conflicts (2001-2008). The war in Afghanistan became the first large armed conflict of the XXI century. Terrorist acts on September 11, 2001 against the United Stated were the major attach of the terrorist underground in history.

This work is the first comprehensive research within the Russian historiography aimed at examination of the impact of Pakistan–United States relations and Islamabad’s policy upon the situation in Afghanistan in 2001-2008, demonstrating the role of “Pakistani factor” in development of the military-political processes in Afghanistan.
