NATO Vows To Stay In Afghanistan Despite 'High' Afghan Forces' Losses

Military action results in growing terrorism US should pull out of Afghanistan – US veteran

On Trump's letter seeking support, the PM Imran Khan said: "Peace in Afghanistan is in Pakistan's interest".

American envoys have met Taliban negotiators in the Gulf this year, but the militants still refuse to talk to Ashraf Ghani's government.

Despite Pakistan's positive rhetoric in support of the US' South Asia Strategy, violent extremist organisations (VEOs) operate along its border with Afghanistan, he said.

Peace in Afghanistan is in Pakistan's interest, he continued, however, from Pakistan's point of view, "we do not want the Americans to leave Afghanistan in a hurry like they did in 1989".

"We are hopefully at a pre-negotiation stage, and there are some elements trying to improve their bargaining position by trying to make military progress", he said.

PM Imran Khan rejecting the United States propaganda on sheltering Taliban leaders here, has said he was briefed about the situation and that he was told that Pakistan has asked the United States several times to share where the sanctuaries are.

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said that he is happy that the United States agreed with his party's stance that there can not be a military solution to the Afghan war.

PM Imran Khan further added, "there are no sanctuaries in Pakistan". "We would like a proper relationship with the U.S".

On Wednesday, he met with a USA peace envoy in Islamabad and pledged to help find a political solution to the long-running war.

"I want to clarify that when we negotiate there are no pre-set demands".

Speaking at the cabinet meeting, he said PTI's viewpoint was now being vindicated by US Special Representative Zamlay Khalilzad rest of the world.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trump in the letter stated that his most important regional priority was achieving a negotiated settlement of the Afghan war and in this regard, the USA president sought Pakistan's support and facilitation.

He said Khalilzad was sent by President Donald Trump for Afghan reconciliation.

"I went as an 18-year-old to play cricket in England".
