U.S. President Donald Trump sought Pakistan's help with Afghan peace talks in a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan, the South Asian nation's information minister, Fawad Chaudhry, said today. In the letter, Trump asked Pakistan to play its role in Afghan peace talks which are aimed at catalysing an end to the 17-year invasion of Afghanistan by United States troops.
"U.S. President Donald Trump, in his letter addressed to Prime Minister Imran Khan, has stated that his most important regional priority was achieving a negotiated settlement of the Afghan war".
Trump complained to Fox News in November that Islamabad doesn't do "a damn thing" for the USA and charged that its government had helped Osama bin Laden hide.
The state department statement said: "Special Representative Khalilzad will be in communication with President Ghani, Chief Executive Abdullah, and other Afghan stakeholders to coordinate closely on efforts to bring the Taliban to the negotiating table with the Afghan government and other Afghans".
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trump in the letter stated that his most important regional priority was achieving a negotiated settlement of the Afghan war and in this regard, the U.S. president sought Pakistan's support and facilitation.
"Pakistan reiterates its commitment to play the role of facilitator in good faith", the ministry statement said.
