Nearly a month ago, US President had written a letter to Imran Khan in which he had asked for Pakistan’s help for peace in Afghanistan and also asked to convince Taliban to sit on table for talks with US to end war in Afghanistan.
US secretary, Mike Pompeo had met Imran Khan in September and had said to take measures against radical militants who are threatening peace process in the region.
In an interview to CNN world news TV channel, Lindsay Graham South Carolina Senator who is said to be near President Trump has said that if Pakistan helps US in terms of bringing Taliban for talks on table with US then US will focus on counterterrorism. He had further said that by help of Pakistan, Afghan war will end.
US president Donald Trump, during a press conference in White House had blasted that US is involving extended involvement in issues of Afghanistan. He further said that US has fought a long war against militants.
Trump Government seems against more involvement of US in Afghanistan but when conditions will be favorable no one knows.
