Pakistan: Complete US withdrawal from Afghanistan undesirable

Pakistan’s new ambassador to the United States, Jalil Abbas Jilani said Wednesday that the complete withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan is not desirable.


Jilani further added that Pakistan is witnessing to receive more Afghan refugees than before, as talks over US withdrawal from Afghanistan have begun.
“Even the talk of US pullout has started having its impact. Pakistan has started to receive more Afghan refugees than before,” Jilani quoted by Dawn News said.
He also added, “This shows that the people of Afghanistan too have fears.”
The United States and it’s allies are planning to withdraw most of their combat troops by the end of 2014 from Afghanistan.
US officials have indicated President Obama is prepared to consider “zero option” of withdrawing all forces from Afghanistan if Afghan government does not agree to the existing security proposal.
However, president Hamid Karzai has said he will not sign the agreement with Washington unless United States promises to end airstrikes and raids on homes, in addition to helping broker peace talks with the Taliban group in a bid to end the violence in the country.
