Donald Trump mocks Indian prime minister for building library in Afghanistan

Donald Trump mocks Indian prime minister for building library in Afghanistan

The remarks also raised eyebrows among officials in Afghanistan at a time when Kabul has voiced frustration with Trump's sudden announcement of a plan to withdraw up to half of US troops as peace talks with Taliban insurgents continue without Afghan government involvement. "They are already there - as they have been for years, fighting the war on behalf of the Taliban, who the president described as the enemy in this remarks". To now hear Trump justifying the invasion was "really odd", he said.

Trump's contention seems to be that India's effort in Afghanistan is "not enough", and he deems it "unacceptable" given the fact that India enjoys a trade surplus with the US.

About engaging with the Pakistani leadership, he said: "So, I look forward to meeting with the folks from - and the new leadership in Pakistan, we'll be doing that in the not-too-distant future".

He said It is Pakistan's genuine desire that peace returns to Afghanistan so that the return of Afghan refugees from Pakistan could be started and an era of prosperity and normalcy could be realised in the region. Russian Federation used to be Soviet Union. One, the fact that the USA, a key ally (and probably India's only ally in Afghanistan) made the jibe. "They were right to be there", he said. The problem is, it was a tough fight.

His understanding of Soviet motivations towards Afghanistan (the invasion wasn't about terrorism) as well as the effects of that invasion on the USSR are simplistic, and not even really correct.

At the height of the U.S. and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commitment to Afghanistan in 2012, there were about 130,000 troops in Afghanistan from the U.S., North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and other coalition countries.

Commenting on elections in Bangladesh, Dr Faisal welcomed Awami League's success and expressed the hope that the party would during its tenure in office adopt a forward-looking approach in ties with Pakistan.

It is an idea that enjoys bipartisan and popular support.

"We look forward to positive engagement with the United States at the leadership level", FO spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal said at the weekly media briefing. The CIA actively aided Afghan rebels who fought against the Soviets.

During the meeting, Trump also said he had initiated peace talks with the Taliban.

"Also, foreign ministers from 34 Islamic countries issued a joint statement in which they blamed the former Soviet Union and demanded the conditional withdrawal of the Red Army from Afghanistan". A civil war raged on in the years that followed, and the communist government was overthrown in 1992.

"This mockery is a slander against every ally that has supported the USA effort in Afghanistan with troops who fought and often died", the piece says.

Moscow's invasion has been cited as one of the contributing factors to the Soviet Union's collapse.

"Our war against the Soviets was righteous. The costs of Afghanistan were significant, but not on anything like that scale".

Trump suddenly announced last month he was pulling United States forces out of Syria and Afghanistan, although he said at the cabinet meeting "we're not getting out tomorrow" but would "over a period of time".

The military community, including the former top USA commander in Afghanistan, has warned Trump that cutting troops would reduce United States leverage on the Taliban and make it more hard to negotiate a peace deal.
