In a major embarrassment for Pakistan, its permanent representative to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi on Monday called British Prime Minister Boris Johnson "Foreign Minister" on Twitter. Thousands of them move across the border every day, and Pakistani authorities are not able to determine whether or not insurgents are also among them.
Khan spoke at the Council on Foreign Relations in NY, before he met with U.S. President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.
Tagging PM Modi's comments on Pakistan at Houston yesterday as "very aggressive", President Trump said it was "well received" by the 50,000-strong crowd.
He said we urged India to reset our relations based on mutual interest.
Islamabad should have taken a neutral stand in the conflict between the United States and the militants, he added, referring to then military leader General Pervez Musharraf's decision to support the United States.
In his speech, the prime minister said that if the U.S. was unsuccessful in Afghanistan for the past 19 years then it is a bleak possibility it will emerge victorious in the next 19 years. "Imran Khan said he will continue to highlight the Kashmir issue at every forum and will fulfill his promise of being the Ambassador of Kashmir". "China has given us a great opportunity to lift ourselves up from where we are right now", he added. He said stability in Afghanistan is in best interest of Pakistan.
He said Pakistani ISI trained Jihadist, who were invited from all over the Muslim world to do jihad against the Soviet Union. He said, "As a member of identity of democracy group I was strongly involved in the defence of sovereignty of states". "Then comes 9/11, and Pakistan again joins the USA in the war on terror and now we are required to go after these groups as terrorists".
