Pakistan decides to reply to US President Trumps letter

US ‘do more’ mantra no longer works with us Pakistani minister tells RT Pakistan Urges US to Leave Afghanistan 'As Friend of the Region'

Referring to US President Donald Trump's South Asia policy, Khan said he was committed to having dialogue to achieve peace in war-torn Afghanistan.

Prime Minister Imran Khan also regretted that his government's repeated overtures for peaceful negotiations with New Delhi had been turned down.

"I would never want to have a relationship where Pakistan is treated like a hired gun - given money to fight someone else's war", Khan told the newspaper.

"No one in the USA government has ever said that we are prepared to impose to support the imposition on Afghan society of certain past practices of the Taliban and so if anyone is suggesting that we are prepared to do that, the answer is we are not", he said.

"We continue to see the Taliban being utilised as a hedge against India rather than as part of a stable, reconciled Afghanistan", McKenzie said.

He added: "For instance, our relationship with China is not one-dimensional".

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg made the comments following the two-day talks ending on December 5, the day after a top US general said the death toll among Afghanistan's security forces will no longer be sustainable unless urgent measures are taken.

"We are interested in a settlement that produces the result we want to see which is peace in Afghanistan", he said.

Last month, Trump said in an interview Pakistan doesn't "do a damn thing" for the United States despite billions of dollars in USA aid, adding that Pakistani officials knew of former al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's location before his killing by US troops in a 2011 raid inside Pakistan.

"It was humiliating that we were losing our soldiers and civilians and (suffering terrorist) bomb attacks because we were participating in the United States war, and then our ally did not trust us to kill Bin Laden", he said, adding that the U.S. "should have tipped off Pakistan". The raid strained relationship between America and long-time ally in the region.

Nevertheless, he did not discount the possibility that Afghan Taliban jihadis are freely moving across the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

He also dismissed claims that there were safe havens for terrorists in Pakistan, saying that "there are no sanctuaries in Pakistan". The Pakistani leader insisted there "are no sanctuaries in Pakistan".

"If we left precipitously right now, I do not believe they (Afghan security forces) would be able to successfully defend their country". Major General Asif Ghafoor urged the U.S. to leave Kabul as a "friend of the region" rather than a "failure".

Dunford stressed that his top priority is not to ensure security and stability in Afghanistan, which has been lying in shambles as a result of the 17-year-long war, but to "make recommendations for the deployment of military force that protects the American people, the homeland and our allies". Now I'm happy that everyone realizes there is only a political solution.

By becoming the front-line state for the U.S. in the war on terror, he regretted, Pakistan "went through hell".

He said the USA provided a "minuscule" $20bn (£15.6bn) in aid.

The prime minister said Pakistan is also in-touch with the Saudi and Iranian leadership to bring peace to strife hit Yemen by bringing all the parties concerned to the negotiating table.

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