Pakistan Back-stabbed America in Afghanistan For Years: Veteran US Army Colonel

Pakistan backstabbed America in Afghanistan for years Former US Army colonel

As part of its effort to revive influence in its former backyard, Moscow plans to hold a regional conference on the Afghan peace process on September 4, a gathering that is highly likely to feature discussion on the fate of American soldiers in the country. Members of the Taliban movement (outlawed in Russia) have been invited to the September meeting.

According to the USA state Department spokesman, the event is unlikely to lead to peace in Afghanistan, so participation is impractical.

The Taliban issued a statement saying that their intention is to send a delegation lead by the head of their political office, which is based in Qatar.

These analysts said the route to direct talks between the Afghan government and Taliban is dependent on global politics. "With respect to ISIS, that is a concern", he said. It has refused direct talks with Kabul, even as it seeks to raises its diplomatic profile in the region and calls for talks with the U.S. which it views as the real power behind the Afghan government.

Russia's embassy in Kabul recently said that the U.S. has held meetings with the group - because it has been in their interests to do so.

The United States has rejected an invitation to join Russia-led talks on Afghanistan because they are unlikely to help bring peace, a State Department spokesman said on Wednesday, as the Trump administration prepared to appoint a diplomatic veteran as a new special envoy for the war-battered nation. "Admittedly, this step does not cause great surprise".

Researchers from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, and the University of Maryland also took part in the study. They were identified by the researchers through a list released by Twitter to Congress that was further refined by NBC.

Though Nicholson said Trump's Afghanistan strategy is working, he acknowledged the increased influence of terror groups including the Islamic State group.

The Foreign Ministry said that the allegation "completely distorts the meaning of Russia's policy on Afghanistan". Just prior to the United States' Oct. 7, 2001, attack on Afghanistan, so many fuel tankers and supply trucks were crossing the Pakistan-Afghan border in Chaman, Balochistan, regular traffic was shut down to allow ISI supplies through to the Taliban stronghold of Kandahar, where Pakistani military advisors remained until November 2001.

That Afghan branch of the IS has been seen as threatening to Russian Federation and the former Soviet republics in Central Asia because it includes many battle-hardened Uzbek militants.

The Pentagon also nominated Marine Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie, director of the Joint Staff, to be the next commander of U.S. Central Command, which oversees U.S. military operations in much of the Middle East and South Asia, including Afghanistan.

Taliban leaders have so far ignored an offer by the Afghan government of direct peace negotiations, calling instead for direct talks with the United States.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo intends to appoint a former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, to a special envoy post that would deal with the Afghan-Taliban peace process and Afghanistan's integration into the administration's Indo-Pacific strategy, according to two USA officials and a congressional aide briefed on the plan.
