    WASHINGTON: The US Department of States and National Security Council have confirmed that President Donald Trump had sent a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan seeking his support in Afghanistan.

    According to details, Prime Minister Imran Khan in an interview with TV anchors on December 3, said he had received a letter from President Trump, wherein the US asked Pakistan to play its role in Afghan peace talks, aimed at ending the 17-year invasion of Afghanistan by the US troops.

    The letter was not shared with the media, however, the National Security Council spokesperson informed that the US president requested full cooperation from Pakistan for the Afghan peace process.

    The spokesperson added that the letter acknowledges that “Pakistan has the ability to deny the Taliban sanctuary on its territory.”

    “Pakistan’s assistance with the Afghan peace process is fundamental to building an enduring US-Pakistan partnership,” the letter further read as per the spokesperson.

    Trump vs Imran: The war of words
    On November 19, US president launched an outburst against Pakistan alleging that America paid Pakistan billions of dollars and they never told them that Osama was living there.


    “Of course we should have captured Osama Bin Laden long before we did. I pointed him out in my book just BEFORE the attack on the World Trade Center. President Clinton famously missed his shot. We paid Pakistan Billions of Dollars & they never told us he was living there. Fools!

    “…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!” he wrote on his Twitter account.


    Prime Minister Imran Khan hit back at President Donald Trump’s statement against Pakistan by saying that instead of making Pakistan a scapegoat for US failures, the Trump administration should do a serious assessment of why the Taliban are stronger in Afghanistan than before.

    Pakistan has suffered enough in the US war on terror and now it would do what was best for its people, said Mr. Khan in his Twitter response to Trump.

    The PM said: “Instead of making Pakistan a scapegoat for their failures, the US should do a serious assessment of why, despite 140000 NATO troops plus 250,000 Afghan troops & reportedly $1 trillion spent on war in Afghanistan, the Taliban today are stronger than before.”

    boo f#cking hoo, I was thinking it was a mega f#cking mistake that the Soviet union collapsed! A huge blunder if it hadn't happened then these mofo yanks would still be in their place instead of showing us their teeth.

    Biggest mistake was being their f#cking ally. c#nts.

    saying otherwise would have null and voided that letter which wasn't the case with Pompeo's visit memo.

    personally i will be very happy if Afghan peace talk become successful and this decades long war come to an end, enough blood has been shed and enough of killing for many innocent, so even if America don't give us F-16s or any other military hardware still it is wroth to put our efforts for the sake of humanity

    Breaking of the Soviet Union was the best thing that ever happened to the World.
    The Soviet Union was a very well orchestrated plan by the assholes sitting on the helms of this world, to try and negate Orthodox Christianity's influence from the Slavic people and bring them under the rule of a communist non God fearing regime, and play them to the sound of their own tunes.

    The Orthodox Christianity has seen a revival after Russia became independent and they are more in control of things now, and getting better.
    Not to forget the bridging of gaps between the Orthodox Christianity/Russia and Islam, and that very alliance is what is standing between the NWO's (Zionists) plans for the World and the Muslim world in particular, and countries like Syria and Iran, and now Pakistan.

    but it must not come for free give back our 103 billion out of 223 billion suffered in War on Terror as well as full taxes on supply lines land air and sea as well as all the previous money for these which were given since 2001 for free.....Along with cleaning up full Afghanistan off indian proxies including of TTP, baloch terrorists PTM and all others including NDS and DAESH........and a clear date of withdrawal from Afghanistan afterwards fully including of all foreigners in any shape and form be it private or government official or unofficial foreigners and contractors. No more free lunches

    another point is that US must start backtracking on its regionally controversial partnership with India!!!!

    Only one response is required from Pakistan to this letter, and it's only two words:

    DO MORE!

    Well, if it is for helping them in withdrawal..then I say Pakistan should help them 100% to get out in a safe manner because US departure means stability for Pakistan and that means peace and prosperity.
