English Official News

Islamabad, September 18, 2021 (PPI-OT):Prime Minister Imran Khan has called for formation of an inclusive government in Afghanistan to strengthen national unity and create long term stability in the war-torn country. In an interview to Russia Today television, he said Pakistan is working with the neighbours of Afghanistan to determine what the Afghan government should do to gain international community’s recognition. Imran Khan said that Pakistan was part of the international community and the recognition of the Taliban government in Afghanistan would be a significant step.

To a question, he said that if it was considered that Islamabad helped Taliban against US, it would mean that Pakistan was more strong from America and all European countries and Pakistan along with 60000 to 70000 men militia carrying light weapons succeeded in defeating an army of 300,000 troops. He said, unfortunately, a propaganda campaign was started against Pakistan.

The propaganda was started to divert attention from the incapacity, corruption and lack of governance by the last Afghanistan government. Imran Khan said the second element in this propaganda was India which had made a huge investment in Afghanistan. He said a comprehensive analysis should be done to know the reasons as to why the army of the bravest nation of the world laid down its weapons without a fight.
