Afghanistan Urges US to Consider Putting Pressure on Pakistan in New Strategy

(Last Updated On: August 11, 2017)

The Afghan Defense Ministry urges Washington to consider putting more pressures on Pakistan in its new strategy for Afghanistan.

“No strategy will end the ongoing war in Afghanistan unless the United States consider pressures on Pakistan and circles supporting terrorists,” said Defense Ministry spokesman Major Gen. Dawlat Waziri.

The remarks come after the U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday said that he is “very close” to making a decision on whether he will approve a plan for more troops in Afghanistan.

“We’re getting close. We’re getting very close,” Trump told reporters when asked about Afghanistan,” it’s a very big decision for me.”

Trump added,” I took over a mess, and we’re going to make it a lot less messy.”

Regarding the stalled U.S. strategy for Afghanistan, the Afghan commentators say that White House is planning to allow private contractors to take over the war in Afghanistan which violates the signed agreements between Kabul – Washington.

“A security agreement was signed between Afghanistan and the United States. Privatizing the Afghan war violates the agreements,” said Afghan political analyst Ahmad Saidee.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan’s former President Hamid Karzai has strongly opposed the proposal to outsource Afghanistan war.

“I vehemently oppose the proposal to the U.S. government to outsource its war in Afghanistan to private security firms. This will be prolonging and intensifying the bloodshed in Afghanistan and a blatant violation of our national sovereignty and constitution,” Karzai’s office said in a statement.
