ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Monday said that US President Donald Trump has written a letter to Prime Minister Imran Khan seeking Islamabad's assistance in the Afghan peace process.
Trump, in the letter, urged Pakistan to play a role in peace talks aimed at bringing an end to the 17-year invasion of Afghanistan by US troops, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement on December 3.
The statement said Trump recognized that the war had come at a significant cost for both the USA and for Pakistan, and underlined that both countries should explore ways to work together.
"The US decision is welcomed. Pakistan reiterates its commitment to play a facilitation role in good faith," said the statement.
Trump’s letter to Khan came two weeks after he had accused Islamabad of sheltering Osama Bin Laden and said despite being paid $1.3 billion, Islamabad had done nothing for Washington.
