It is unfair to blame Pakistan for the situation in Afghanistan: PM-IK tells Ashraf Ghani

The prime minister made the comments at the international conference on “Central and South Asia Regional Connectivity: Challenges and Opportunities” during his two-day visit to Uzbekistan. The Afghan president was also present at the conference.
PM Imran’s remarks came shortly before the two leaders were scheduled to meet on the sidelines of the conference.
“President Ghani let me just say that the country that will be most affected by turmoil in Afghanistan is Pakistan. Pakistan suffered 70,000 casualties in the last 15 years. The last thing Pakistan wants is more conflict,” the premier said as he stopped reading from his written speech.
He also said that Taliban was no longer willing to compromise after the United States gave a date for the withdrawal of troops.
The premier said that Pakistan’s economy was finally recovering after going through a difficult phase. “I repeat, the last thing we want is turbulence in Afghanistan.”
