On Twitter last month following the bin Laden accusations, Mr Khan said Mr Trump needed to be "informed about historical facts", adding that Pakistan had "suffered enough fighting US's war [on terror]". We are in Afghanistan to help the Afghan people, but we are also in Afghanistan to help ourselves. "Pakistan must leverage their influence over the Taliban leadership to help compel them to come to the table for reconciliation negotiations", he added. "We want a similar relationship with the United States".
The heads of the U.S. and Pakistan exchanged accusations on Twitter last month, following Donald Trump's criticism of Islamabad and its policies.
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.
He said during a summit last July, NATO chose to strengthen its support to Afghanistan with more troops to train, advise and assist the Afghan security forces so they can create the conditions for peace and reconciliation.
Over 2,400 United States soldiers have perished in Afghanistan during the protracted conflict, a number that is closing in on the death toll from the attacks of September 11, 2001, which prompted the US' invasion. "Now I'm happy that everyone realizes there is only a political solution", he said.
Gen. Ghafoor again rejected allegations his country is allowing the Taliban to plan attacks inside Afghanistan.He said Pakistani security forces have eliminated all terrorist sanctuaries on their side and a military-led massive construction effort is now underway to fence off the almost 2,600 kilometer border with Afghanistan.
"I want to make Pakistan an equitable, just society".
The Trump administration, in the recent months, has intensified its efforts to seek a negotiated settlement of America's longest war in Afghanistan where the USA has lost over 2,400 soldiers since late 2001, when it invaded the country after the 9/11 terror attacks. "Pakistan was left with militant groups and 4 million Afghan refugees".
In response to a question about the premier's recent efforts to acquire financial assistance from Saudi Arabia, UAE and China, he said that details of the agreements will be kept confidential. "I would be on the opposite side of President Donald Trump in terms of economic policy, probably closer to Senator Bernie Sanders".
Shireen Mazari, the country's human rights minister, said on Twitter the 18 groups were responsible for spreading disinformation.
"If we go with the International Monetary Fund, we will make sure this is the last time", he promised, suggesting that "Pakistan has never made the structural changes that are needed". I had gone on television and warned everyone that we will stand by the Supreme Court verdict. "The head of the TLP then passed a death sentence on the Supreme Court judges and kept saying that they should be killed". "Now we have embarked on structural reforms". "Let's hope that after the election is over, we can again resume talks with India".
Afghan Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani conceded that the security forces are sustaining many casualties, but he said they are increasingly successful in repelling enemy attack. "I have asked our government to find out the status of the case".
