The COAS said:

“We have done a lot towards that end and shall keep on doing our best, not to appease anyone but in line with our national interest and national policy.”

COAS added:

“We are not looking for any material or financial assistance from USA but trust, understanding and acknowledgement of our contributions.”

Collaboration and synergy of effort between all stakeholders is the key to success to bring this long drawn war in Afghanistan to its logical confusion, the COAS concluded.

Trump committed on Monday the United States to an open-ended conflict in Afghanistan, signaling he would dispatch more troops to America’s longest war and vowing ‘a fight to win’.

Trump insisted that others – the Afghan government, Pakistan, India and NATO allies – step up their own commitment to resolving the 16-year conflict, but he saved his sharpest words for Pakistan.

Senior US officials warned security assistance for Pakistan could be reduced unless the nuclear-armed nation cooperated more in preventing militants from using safe havens on its soil.

We also don’t need any financial assistance from US. Pak Fauj Zindabad, Pakistan Zindabad, General Qamar Javed Bajwa Zindabad.
