Pakistan will no longer fight someone else's war: Imran Khan

US ‘do more’ mantra no longer works with us Pakistani minister tells RT

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

"We would like a proper relationship with the United States", he said.

On the role of Pakistan, the United States envoy said that Pakistan has not played a constructive role in Afghan peace as it should have played so far. "There are no sanctuaries in Pakistan", he clarified.

The comments come as Pakistan's army backed U.S. efforts for a political settlement with the Afghan Taliban to end 17 years of fighting.

He said a wrong impression had been created by the country's leadership in the past that Pakistan would be harmed if it did not fight someone else's war in Afghanistan. The US has satellites and drones.

"In the letter, the President recognises that Pakistan has the ability to deny the Taliban sanctuary on its territory", the spokesperson said. "We will do everything". If you did not agree with the USA policy, you were [thought to be] anti-American. Now I'm happy that everyone realizes there is only a political solution.

On the Mumbai terror attacks of 2008, Khan said: "We also want something done about the bombers of Mumbai". The proposal for a meeting had followed Khan's letter to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, offering "constructive engagement".

"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 not only cost us human lives, devastation of our tribal areas, but it also cost us our dignity", Khan said. Four U.S. soldiers were also killed by a roadside bomb, the deadliest attack against U.S. forces this year.

He added: "For instance, our relationship with China is not one-dimensional". It's a trade relationship between two countries and we wanted a similar relationship with US.

"They are fighting hard, but their losses are not going to be sustainable" unless measures are taken to "correct" recruiting and training issues, Lieutenant-General Kenneth McKenzie, who has been nominated to lead the US military's Central Command that oversees wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan, said on December 4.

"It was humiliating that we were losing our soldiers and civilians and (suffering terrorist) bomb attacks because we were participating in the U.S. war, and then our ally did not trust us to kill Bin Laden", he said, adding that the USA "should have tipped off Pakistan".

In response to a question about the premier's recent efforts to acquire financial assistance from Saudi Arabia, UAE and China, he said that details of the agreements will be kept confidential. "We raised money, but we are talking to the International Monetary Fund". We are there to fight global terrorism and to prevent Afghanistan from ever again becoming a safe haven for worldwide terrorism. And yet Pakistan was asked to participate in the USA war. PepsiCo has put extra investments because we are a clean government.

The US envoy said they are trying to bring about those circumstances that allows those negotiation among Afghans to occur.

"India rebuffed all my overtures because they have elections and the ruling [BJP] party has an anti-Muslim, anti-Pakistan approach", he added.

"There were a lot of people in Pakistan who opposed it, including me. I would be on the opposite side of President Donald Trump in terms of economic policy, probably closer to Senator Bernie Sanders".

"I went as an 18-year-old to play cricket in England".
