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

Prime Minister Imran Khan has accused the U.S. 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".

"Ambassador Khalilzad stressed the United States' commitment to facilitating a political settlement between the Afghan government and the Taliban that ensures Afghanistan never again serves as a platform for global terrorism and ends the 40-years-long war in the country", noted the embassy statement. It's a trade relationship between two countries and we wanted a similar relationship with US.

"The security situation in Afghanistan remains hard, we have seen a number of high profile attacks in the past month, but the Afghan forces stand firms so do we. We do not want to have conditions imposed on us which would cause more unemployment and inflation".

When asked about his stance regarding the killing of Osama Bin Laden, Khan said "most Pakistanis felt deeply humiliated that we were not trusted, implying that we were complicit in it".

Dr Faisal said there were no preconditions for this cooperation for peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan.

The premier also spoke about the Yemen issue and said, "I spoke to Saudi Arabia and Iran's foreign minister regarding establishing peace in Yemen".

Talking about Yemen, he said Pakistan has found an opportunity to play mediator.

The statement comes a day after US special envoy for Afghan reconciliation, Zalmay Khalilzad, visited Islamabad and sought cooperation from the Pakistani leadership for Washington's renewed push for finding a negotiated end to the 17-year-old war with the Taliban. "I think the task that we have is to make it attractive to them so that they see that it is in their best interest to do that", McKenzie said.

Meanwhile, a report presented in the federal cabinet stated that 80% implementation has been carried out on the decisions taken in earlier meetings.
