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

Reflecting on the two nations' changing relationship, the Pakistani prime minister said his country would no longer want to be "treated like a hired gun", referring to the war against the Soviet Union in the 1980s and the ongoing U.S. "war on terror".

The Pakistani leader also said that he "wants something done about the bombers of Mumbai", adding that "resolving that case is in our interest because it was an act of terrorism".

US President Trump, in a letter to PM Imran Khan couple of days ago, had asked for Islamabad's help in ending Afghan conflict and bringing Taliban leadership to the negotiating table.

Mr Khan told The Washington Post: "I would never want to have a relationship where Pakistan is treated like a hired gun - given money to fight someone else's war". It not only cost us human lives, devastation of our tribal areas, but it also cost us our dignity.

He said that when he spoke about the lack of a military solution in Afghanistan he was called Taliban Khan. "We hope Pakistan will fulfill all its announcements in regards to the Kartarpur Sahib Corridor".

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

"The last thing we want is to have chaos in Afghanistan".

USA forces, which entered Afghanistan in 2001 to oust the Taliban for harboring al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, now number around 15,000 and provide close support to Afghan forces and carry out counterterrorism operations.

Kabul does not have of about 45 percent of Afghanistan, the latest assessment by the U.S. Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), a watchdog agency, shows. He said the USA and its allies need to keep helping the Afghans recruit and train forces to fight the Taliban's estimated 60,000 troops.

The Trump administration has suspended hundreds of millions in funding for Pakistan over Islamabad's refusal to take decisive action against terrorist groups orchestrating attacks against US troops in Afghanistan from Pakistani soil.
