U.S. must stay in Afghanistan or face new 9/11, top general urges

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

"We are in Afghanistan to help the Afghan people but we are also in Afghanistan to help ourselves".

Dr Faisal said there were no preconditions for this cooperation for peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan.

"We call on all countries to play a constructive role and to support the Afghan peace", he said.

Fifteen years after North Atlantic Treaty Organisation took the lead on global security efforts in Afghanistan, the military alliance's foreign ministers on Wednesday reaffirmed their commitment to stay the course despite mounting Afghan casualties and the slow pace of peace efforts.

Ambassador Khalilzad started his multi-nation tour for Afghan peace this week.

Mr Khan said a precipitous American withdrawal from Afghanistan would lead to a repeat of the chaos of the 1990s. The trip will continue until December 20. We are there to fight worldwide terrorism and to prevent Afghanistan from ever again becoming a safe heaven for global terrorism.

"In the letter, the President recognises that Pakistan has the ability to deny the Taliban sanctuary on its territory", the spokesperson said.

DNA 'fingerprint' brings prospect of fast test for cancer
It involves taking blood sample of the patient and examining the pattern of molecules called methyl groups that decorate its DNA. The test, which can be done using a drop of blood, cannot tell what kind of cancer someone has or how far it has progressed.

McKenzie said, "stability in the South Asia region remains the most important mutual strategic interest for both the U.S. and Pakistan, and I think we must continue to engage with Pakistani leadership to realise how we can achieve this mutual interest".

The statement comes a day after USA special envoy for Afghan reconciliation, Zalmay Khalilzad, visited Islamabad and sought cooperation from the Pakistani leadership for Washington's renewed push for finding a negotiated end to the 17-year-old war with the Taliban.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has accused the U.S. of "pushing Pakistan away" and said he would never want to have a relation with Washington where his country is treated like a "hired gun".

"We will try our best to establish peace in Afghanistan through dialogue", he added while lamenting that "we were treated as if we were being given funds to fight someone else's war". It is the responsibility of all countries to remain alongside the Afghan security forces and help them in fighting terrorism.

"We must continue to engage with the Pakistani leadership to realise how we can achieve this mutual interest", McKenzie said. "Now I'm happy that everyone realises there is only a political solution". "It was the first time I saw a welfare state", he said. Washington and Afghan officials have long maintained the Taliban leadership is based in Pakistan and is being covertly supported by the country's spy agency. McKenzie said that the meeting was to see if the United States can find some way forward.

"We will try to make the Afghan Taliban engage in dialogue with the U.S.", the prime minister replied when asked about the way forward following Trump's letter. "We are not doing anything new, these things were part of our manifesto", the premier said. "We won't be asking them for money".
