Imran wants peace in Kabul without fighting others’ war


Prime Minister Imran Khan has accused the United States of "pushing Pakistan away" and said he would never want to have a relation with Washington where his country is treated like a "hired gun".

Some 14,000 USA soldiers are now serving in Afghanistan, and McKenzie couldn't say how much longer the United States would remain in the country. Now I'm happy that everyone realizes there is only a political solution.

The general also cautioned that the Afghan security forces "are not there yet and if we left precipitously right now I don't believe they would be able to successfully defend their country". "Let's hope that after the election is over, we can again resume talks with India". The US has satellites and drones.

He said that Pakistan's founder Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah sacrificed everything during his struggle for the creation of Pakistan.

On being asked about accusations by the United States that Pakistan was "harbouring" Taliban leaders, Khan said: "I have never understood these accusations".

"Pakistan is an essential element in long-term stability in Afghanistan", McKenzie told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee Tuesday during his confirmation hearing for commander of the US Central Command (CENTCOM).

Kabul does not have control of about 45 percent of Afghanistan, the latest assessment by the U.S. Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), a watchdog agency, shows. Now, after releasing three Taliban veterans, and having received Khalilzad at the highest level indicates Pakistani leaders are again positioning themselves for a "bigger" role in the Afghan reconciliation. "If we had stayed neutral after 9/11, I reckon we would have saved ourselves from the devastation that took place afterward", he explained, adding that by becoming the "front-line state for the U.S. in the war on terror, this country went through hell". "If we had stayed neutral after 9/11, I reckon we would have saved ourselves from the devastation".

The newlyweds are all set to celebrate their wedding with friends and families at the Taj Palace Hotel in New Delhi on Tuesday. The wedding itself was a lavish, multi-day affair, with a traditional Indian ceremony as well as a Western ceremony.

"As I said our goal here grounded in the objective realities is that there needs to be a settlement that comes from within the society so that it is broadly accepted by the society and therefore has a good chance of being implemented", he said. In his first interview to foreign media, PM Khan had said that he has asked his government to find out the status of the case.

Khan has made similar remarks earlier after India cancelled a proposed meeting in NY between the two countries' foreign ministers in September.

"The ruling party [in India] has an anti-Muslim, anti-Pakistan approach", he pointed out. I had gone on television and warned everyone that we will stand by the Supreme Court verdict.

He also said that the exports and remittances were going up, explaining that the investors were taking keen interest by coming to the country.
