Pakistan decides to reply to US President Trumps letter

Pakistan Urges US to Leave Afghanistan 'As Friend of the Region'

Prime Minister Imran Khan has categorically said Pakistan will no longer fight others' war and those who had been asking Pakistan to "do more" now want us to mediate between the Afghan warlords and the US-backed Afghan government.

"They are fighting hard, but their losses are not going to be sustainable" unless measures are taken to "correct" recruiting and training issues, Lieutenant-General Kenneth McKenzie, who has been nominated to lead the US military's Central Command that oversees wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan, said on December 4.

Recently, US President Donald Trump and Pakistan Prime Minister engaged into a war of words on Twitter after the former, in an interview with Fox News said that Pakistan doesn't do "a damn thing for us", and also alleged that the country helped wanted terrorist Osama Bin Laden to hide in its soil.

He said a wrong impression had been created by the country's leadership in the past that Pakistan would be harmed if it did not fight someone else's war in Afghanistan.

Mr Khan said a precipitous American withdrawal from Afghanistan would lead to a repeat of the chaos of the 1990s.

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan gestures as he speaks during the groundbreaking ceremony of the Kartarpur border corridor, which will officially open next year, in Pakistan November 28, 2018.

He said Iranian Foreign Minister Jawwad Zarif also paid a visit to Islamabad and discussed the modalities for Yemen peace process. We are in Afghanistan to help the Afghan people, but we are also in Afghanistan to help ourselves.

When asked if Pakistan was trying to hedge its bets using China, Mr Khan replied: "The US has basically pushed Pakistan away". However, the present government has taken a firm stance that the country will watch its own interests and not become a part of the US-led war in the neighbouring country.

"We are interested in a settlement that produces the result we want to see which is peace in Afghanistan", he said. Putting pressure on the Taliban, however, is easier said than done, he said.

The renewed North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commitment came in a week when the Marine officer nominated to command US forces in the Middle East warned that the fight there is at a stalemate and the number of Afghan troop deaths in the war is not sustainable.

"If we left precipitously right now, I do not believe they (Afghan security forces) would be able to successfully defend their country".

If Pakistan had stayed neutral after the September 2001 terror attack in the United States, Pakistan would have saved itself from devastation, Khan said. "I think the task that we have is to make it attractive to them so that they see that it is in their best interest to do that", McKenzie said.

"There were a lot of people in Pakistan who opposed it, including me". "Let's hope that after the election is over, we can again resume talks with India".

"Our government's prime focus is uplifting the poor and giving due share to underprivileged areas of the country", said the premier. "I have asked our government to find out the status of the case". "If you don't stand by what the Supreme Court says, then there's no state left".
