Sources told that Pakistan will assure to help US in Afghan reconciliation process while it will also give suggestion to resume Pak-US strategic talks.

Speaking at an event organized by the Washington Post, Dunford said that American military presence in Afghanistan is essential to contain terrorists who otherwise would regroup and take revenge on the US.

Mr Khan said peace in Afghanistan was in Pakistan's interest and vowed to put pressure on the Afghan Taliban but said it was "easier said than done" with "about 40% of Afghanistan now out of the government's hands".

Importantly, this looks like the U.S. may use the Pakistani shoulders - yet again - for engineering a symbolic pullout to satisfy Trump's ego.

Martin Dubravka reveals what was ‘unexpected’ about Newcastle’s defeat to West Ham
West Ham are level with The Magpies on 12 points so Saturday's meeting between the two teams is a very tough one to call. West Ham made four changes as Cresswell, Noble, Snodgrass and Hernandez replaced Masuaku, Obiang, Diangana and Antonio.

USA forces must remain in the bogged-down Afghanistan campaign, or terrorists might get back on their feet and launch another 9/11-scale attack on American people, General Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said.

This also dovetails Pakistan's opposition to an abrupt U.S. withdrawal.

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. Pakistan's earlier claim of "influence over Taliban" literally turned into a baggage.

"I do believe that any solution in Afghanistan is going to require the assistance of Pakistan". Now I'm happy that everyone realizes there is only a political solution.

Over 2,400 U.S. soldiers have perished in Afghanistan during the protracted conflict, a number that is closing in on the death toll from the attacks of September 11, 2001, which prompted the US' invasion. Then, in 1989, when the Soviets packed up and left, the United States did too.

"We believe they are not playing a fully constructive role as they should be in contributing to a political settlement in Afghanistan and in addressing the very real challenges that violence generated by the Taliban poses for the society", he said.

However, the Western-backed government's security forces have struggled to counter attacks from the Taliban and other militant groups since the withdrawal of most North Atlantic Treaty Organisation combat troops. They said that we have time and time again asked the Americans, "Can you tell us where the sanctuaries are, and we will go after them?" "If we had stayed neutral after 9/11, I reckon we would have saved ourselves from the devastation". It was the first time I saw a welfare state.

Pakistan on Friday chose to respond to US President Donald Trump's letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan.
