Afghan Peace Process: Trump Ready To Work With Pakistan PM Imran Khan

Published

The Afghan Peace process may be revitalized after US President Donald Trump has written a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan seeking Islamabad’s assistance in peace talks with the Afghan Taliban, Express News reported.

Pakistan-Afghanistan Relations on the Rocks Following Brutal Murder of Top Cop

Addressing a meeting with journalists in Islamabad, the premier revealed that Trump, in his letter, sought Pakistan’s assistance in the Afghan peace process.

The letter from the US president came after a war of words between the two head of the states. Imran further added that he had always believed only dialogue could bring stability in Afghanistan.

“We no longer pay Pakistan the $Billions because they would take our money and do nothing for us, Bin Laden being a prime example, Afghanistan being another. They were just one of many countries that take from the United States without giving anything in return. That’s ENDING!” Trump had tweeted on November 19. 

Prime Minister Imran, in a series of tweets, had fired back at the US leader, saying the record needed to be “put straight”.  Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry confirmed to Reuters that Trump had written the letter.

Prime Minister Imran told journalists that previously, Pakistan had been apologetic in its relations with the United States but his government has dealt with the country on equal terms.  He assured that Pakistan would play any role possible for peace in Afghanistan.

Pakistan was among the countries that met in Geneva, Switzerland on November 27, 2018, on Afghan reforms and peace prospects in the region. During the two-day conference, Afghan leaders and international diplomats evaluated whether strategies and aid offered to Afghanistan were helping resolve the quagmire created by the prolonged war, paving way for the withdrawal of foreign troops.
