US President Donald Trump has written a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan seeking Islamabad’s assistance in peace talks with the Afghan Taliban, Express News reported.
Addressing a meeting with journalists in Islamabad, the premier revealed that Trump, in his letter, sought Pakistan’s assistance in the Afghan peace process.
He further said that the US president had lauded Pakistan’s role and stressed over achieving peace.
Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry confirmed Trump’s call for support. “President Trump has written a letter. He has asked for Pakistan’s cooperation to bring the Taliban into talks,” Chaudhry told Reuters.
PM Imran vows to transform lives of differently-abled persons
The letter from the US president came after a war of words between the two head of the states.
Imran further added that he had always believed only dialogue could bring stability in Afghanistan.
On November 19, the roller-coaster relationship between the two countries touched a new low when President Trump fired off a fresh tirade against Pakistan, triggering an angry retort from PM Imran and his cabinet members.
Premier Imran highlighted that Pakistan is among few allies who suffered 75,000 casualties in the US War on Terror in Afghanistan in response to Trump’s statement that “Pakistan don’t do a thing for us” in a Fox News interview.
The US president’s remarks came after he tried to defend his government’s decision to reduce military aid for Pakistan.
During the interview, Trump claimed that Pakistan, despite knowing the whereabouts of Osama Bin Laden, harboured the terrorist in Abbottabad before the US commandos eventually gunned him down in a raid in 2011.
