Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Imran Khan, now wants to hit the “reset button” and rebuild their relationship with the United States. He made the comment this week during a meeting with President Trump at the White House.
The Prime Minister admitted that Pakistan had been lying about the presence of Jihadi groups in the country right after 9/11. He also said that they are now ready to take decisive action against terrorists. He wants to use his influence with the Taliban to support American interests around Afghanistan.
As Trump stated, “We could go one of two ways, we could do a number the likes of which they’ve never seen before and win it very quickly, but I don’t want to do that because you’re talking about millions of people and I don’t want to do that. And we’re working with Pakistan on getting a solution, and I think it’s been working very well.”
Over 40,000 Islamic militants are operating in Pakistan right now.
