USA seeks Pakistan's help to establish peace in Afghanistan: PM

The Taliban are fighting to flush out US-led worldwide forces and re-establish their regime in Afghanistan after their ouster in 2001. "We do not want to have conditions imposed on us which would cause more unemployment and inflation".

He said that when he spoke about the lack of a military solution in Afghanistan he was called Taliban Khan. Putting pressure on the Taliban, however, is easier said than done, he said.

Khan said he wanted a relationship with the U.S. like the one with China - "not one-dimensional" and a "trade relationship".

Earlier, Donald Trump wrote a letter to PM Imran asking for help in resolving the Afghanistan issue.

"In the letter, the President recognises that Pakistan has the ability to deny the Taliban sanctuary on its territory", the spokesperson said.

"Like the US, Pakistan too seeks peace in Afghanistan which is in its interest as well", the PM said, as he assured his government "will do its best".

"We have already fenced more than 600-kilometer proton of the border.The construction of forts and new posts has also been completed by 60 percent.God willing when the entire fence would be in place by the end of next year, we assume the cross-border threat facing us will reduce to a large extent". He said peace in Afghanistan is in Pakistan's interest, so his government will do "everything" to help.

"While Pakistan has conducted some operations against VEOs in the country, they must continue to expand these operations and remain aggressively engaged", McKenzie said.

Gen. Ghafoor again rejected allegations his country is allowing the Taliban to plan attacks inside Afghanistan.He said Pakistani security forces have eliminated all terrorist sanctuaries on their side and a military-led massive construction effort is now underway to fence off the almost 2,600 kilometer border with Afghanistan.

On Wednesday, he met with a USA peace envoy in Islamabad and pledged to help find a political solution to the long-running war. "Bear in mind that about 40 percent of Afghanistan is now out of the government's hands".

"I want to make Pakistan an equitable, just society".

"To push the peace agenda forward, an authoritative negotiating team will conduct direct negotiations with the Taliban and we expect the same from the Taliban to give us a united negotiating team", said Saikal.

"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.

Recently, the efforts by US to facilitate the peace talks between the afghan government and the Taliban have increased for which, the US Special Envoy for Afghanistan Reconciliation visited Kabul for the third time on Tuesday.

The Trump administration has suspended hundreds of millions in funding for Pakistan over Islamabad's refusal to take decisive action against terrorist groups orchestrating attacks against US troops in Afghanistan from Pakistani soil.
