"It is good that we have gotten the chance to play the role of a mediator rather than fighting someone else's war", PM Imran said, adding that "Pakistan's role in the region is now being recognised". The trip will continue until December 20. "From Pakistan's point of view, we do not want the Americans to leave Afghanistan in a hurry like they did in 1989". The Pakistani leader insisted there "are no sanctuaries in Pakistan". "The US has basically pushed Pakistan away".

Khililzad's visit to Islamabad followed a request from U.S. President Donald Trump to Prime Minister Imran Khan seeking help in furthering the Afghan peace process.

The prime minister referred to President Trump's letter asking for assistance in bringing the Taliban to the negotiating table and said "I talked for years about how there was no military solution in Afghanistan, and they called me "Taliban Khan".

"While Pakistan has conducted some operations against VEOs in the country, they must continue to expand these operations and remain aggressively engaged", McKenzie said. "We do not want to have conditions imposed on us which would cause more unemployment and inflation".

"We will try to make the Afghan Taliban engage in dialogue with the United States", the prime minister replied when asked about the way forward following Trump's letter. "I think the task that we have is to make it attractive to them so that they see that it is in their best interest to do that", McKenzie said.

The death toll for the Afghan forces has been on the rise, with some 28,529 soldiers estimated to have died fighting the Taliban since North Atlantic Treaty Organisation handed control of security to local forces three years ago.
