Khan added that his country had not been informed about Trump's decision, which he said he only learned about through the media. The US president' would hold talks with his Pakistani counterpart for the second time since July when the former had offered to mediate the Kashmir dispute.

Khan, a former cricket star who has long criticized military operations against extremists, discounted the possibility that the Taliban would topple the internationally recognized government in Kabul without U.S. troops. Khan claimed there could not be a military solution to the situation in Afghanistan and said he would ask United States President Donald Trump to restart peace talks.

He said the United States abandoned Afghanistan in 1989 and we were left with these groups. "They support terror, they harbour terrorists". Khan said previous governments in Islamabad "should not have pledged what they could not deliver" and added that 70,000 Pakistanis were killed as the country's economic growth took a hit.
