IS­LAM­ABAD: Prime Minister Im­ran Khan on Fri­day has di­rected For­eign Min­istry to pre­pare re­ply to United States Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s let­ter.

Sources told that Pak­istan will as­sure to help US in Afghan rec­on­cil­i­a­tion process while it will also give sug­ges­tion to re­sume Pak-US strate­gic talks.

Ear­lier, Trump wrote a let­ter to PM ask­ing for help in re­solv­ing Afghanistan is­sue. US has real­ized that peace can­not be at­tained in Afghanistan with­out Pak’s help, said the premier.

Of­fi­cially al­lies in fight­ing ter­ror­ism, Pak and US have a com­pli­cated re­la­tion­ship, bound byWash­ing­ton’s de­pen­dence on Pak­istan to sup­ply its troops in Afghanistan but plagued by ac­cu­sa­tions Is­lam­abad is play­ing a dou­ble game. Last month, Trump said in an in­ter­view Pak­istan doesn’t “do a damn thing” for the United States de­spite bil­lions of dol­lars in U.S. aid, adding that Pak­istani of­fi­cials knew of for­mer al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden’s lo­ca­tion be­fore his killing by U.S. troops in a 2011 raid in­side Pak­istan.
