Donald Trump, Imran Khan Discussed to Exit Afghanistan War

Donald Trump, Imran Khan Discussed to Exit Afghanistan War

With Khan at the beginning of the White House meeting, Trump said, “I think Pakistan will help us to overcome ourselves.”

Trump talked about the possibility of recovery of US $ 1.3 billion in American aid, which he cut last year, based on the outcome of the meeting, and offered to mediate the old dispute between Pakistan and India on the Kashmir region.

There is a complex relationship between the United States and Pakistan. Last year, Trump had complained to Twitter that the Pakistanis did not give us anything other than “lies and deceptions for terrorists” and “safe havens”. Pakistan has denied the allegations.

Trump said that on Monday he was against us, saying that the US relations with Pakistan had improved.

Khan told Trump that the peace agreement with the Taliban was closer than before.

Khan said at the Oval office meeting, “We hope that in the days to come, we will help the Taliban to speak to the Afghan government and reach a solution, a political solution.”

Trump wants to end US military intervention in Afghanistan and believe that Pakistan’s cooperation is important for any deal to end the war and ensure that the country will not be the basis for armed groups like Islamic State.

Washington wants Islamabad to put pressure on the Taliban in Afghanistan for a permanent ceasefire and participate in talks with the Afghan government.

Special envoy of the State Department Zalime Khalilzad will travel to Afghanistan and Qatar where he will resume talks with the Taliban from July 22 to August 1.

Pentagon said that Pakistani army commander General Qamar Javed Bajwa later met on Monday a senior US Army officer and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Joseph Danford.

Analysts believe that Baja will play an important role in discussions behind the curtain, with military discovery to persuade Washington to persuade Washington and support.

Prison doctor

In Pakistan, officials in Pakistan arrested last week’s alleged mastermind Hafiz Saeed of the terrorist attack on the Indian city of Mumbai, which was classified as a terrorist by the United States and United Nations. More than 160 people were killed in a four-day siege.

But Pakistan has not released Shakeel Afridi in prison, who is believed to have helped former President Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden to hunt the CIA, whose organization was attacked on 11 September 2001 for attacking America.

The cause was due to US military intervention. Next month in Afghanistan. US Army killed bin Laden in Pakistan in 2011

Trump told the reporters that he would discuss Afridi along with Khan and other “hostages” along with Khan. Khan told Trump that he brought “good news” about two hostages, but did not tell what he meant when he was present.

Khan told Fox News that he would be willing to consider the release of Afridi instead of Pakistani neuroscientist Afia Siddiqui, who was convicted in 2010 for firing agents and soldiers, in 86 years in the United States. is. “Yes, we can negotiate on a kind of exchange,” he said.

India, who had approached Pakistan on the disputed Kashmir region for a war in February, who accuses Islamabad of supporting rebels, will closely monitor the talks in Washington.

India has consistently rejected foreign arbitration in its dispute with Pakistan about Kashmir in the past.

Trump said that he discussed Kashmir issue with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Moody, whom he had recently met in Osaka, Japan, last month in G20.

Trump said: “He really said,” Would you like to become a broker or moderator? “I said,” Where? “He said,” Kashmir, “because it lasted for many years.

“If you can help, then I would like to be an arbiter,” he said.

But Indian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ravish Kumar said that Moody did not ask Trump to help in arbitration.

Can’t stop China in disputed seas, won’t risk clash

Can’t stop China in disputed seas, won’t risk clash

Philippine President Rodrigo Dattati said on Monday that there is no way to stop Chinese fishing in his country’s exclusive economic zone and he will not risk losing the Philippine troops in a clash in the disputed South China Sea.

“When Shi says” I’ll catch, “who can stop him?” Dutari, who defended his unrestrained attitude towards the regional conflicts of China, said in his nation’s annual address before a joint Congress session. He was referring to Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“If Marines send out Chinese fishermen, then I assure you that none of them will return alive,” Dutter said, diplomatic negotiations with Beijing had allowed the return of Filipino to the disputed fishing field. , Where Chinese soldiers were previously annoyed. They are away

Critics repeatedly nurtured cordial relations with Beijing, not to face China’s aggressive behavior in disputed waters and to make their decision not to imitate the immediate compliance with China’s international arbitration that overturned Beijing’s historical claims.

Dutty has repeatedly criticized doing so. China refused to recognize the 2016 law.

It was also found in the judgment that China violated its duty in respect to the right to fishing Filipino when the Chinese soldiers had stopped Scarborough Shawl from North-Western Philippines in 2012.

However, the Philippines was unable to stop Chinese fishermen from Scarborough. Rule But the decision did not specify any traditional fishing area within the exclusive area of ​​the Philippines, where Chinese fishing can be allowed.

The Exclusive Economic Zone is two hundred nautical miles (370 km), where the coastal state has the exclusive right to exploit and exploit other resources based on the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Sea of ​​the Sea, as well as the offshore gas and oil.

In his fight against drugs and illegal corruption, Dotter asked the Congress to restore the death penalty for narcotics-related crimes and economic loot.

He said that the threat of drugs, which he called “social monster,” can not be crushed until the corruption is eliminated.

Regional differences of the Philippines have long been exposed in China’s Dirort Central campaign against illegal drugs and corruption in their speech.

But they demanded to delay the release of government permits for slow internet services and various traffic jams, to help the Congress in tackling many social diseases and governance issues.

After threatening to sack the officials, Duther explained the problems solved sometimes, through a strategy to scare, such as reducing water shortage in Manila in the capital last summer.

However, the annual discourse is traditionally full of protocols and formalities, but it includes sexual jokes, curses, and threats, which has been a trademark of their often contained speeches.

For example, during the water crisis in Manila, he said that he did not want to travel to the city. “What if my friend can not take a bath, will the smell of hell smell?” They said.

When the Congress was asked to approve new tax reforms, which would increase indirect taxes on tobacco and alcohol, Duretti asked whether there were any smokers in the presence.

The 74-year duo took over in June 2016 and were very popular in the opinion polls due to the international concern and other controversial policies during the drug war.

More allies won congressional seats in the mid-term elections in May, which gave them a tight hold on the legislature, especially in the 24-member Senate, who opposed some of the major legislative proposals last year, including the death penalty and amendment Were included. Supporter. Constitution of democracy

Despite the rain outside the house building for demand for the dismissal of Duterte, more than 5,200 demonstrators performed, while Duterte’s supporters protested separately.

Leftist protesters burnt the fake Chinese flag and burned pictures of Daphthari, Chinese President Chey and American President Donald Trump, a huge murals depicting them.

Army and police were kept on high alert and officials announced the no-fly zone in place and remote areas to ensure safety.

Will China intervene in Hong Kong protests

Will China intervene in Hong Kong protests

While China does not want to interfere in summer opposition, which shook Hong Kong, it does not mean that it will not do it. Movement, now in its seventh week, entered a more dangerous area on two fronts.

Distorted the central government’s official slogan and dump their buildings in Hong Kong with eggs. Needless to say, his work in Beijing was not welcomed.

On one hand, in an increase, an armed group with metal rods and wooden pillars beat anti-government protesters and others inside the Metro Station late on Sunday night.

45 people were injured in the attack, including one who is in serious condition. Beijing supporters have clashed with protesters earlier, but not on this scale.

Neither side wants the PLA to interfere, but rising anarchism and China who see their rights as a direct challenge, they take the risk.

A belligerent attack on protesters has increased the allegations of collusion between police and criminal gangs, although the Hong Kong Police Commissioner clearly blamed it and it was unclear who was behind it.

China has the possibility of international condemnation by any intervention and threatens the status of Hong Kong as the financial center governed by the rule of law.

This will compare the lethal military campaign of China with the pro-democracy protests of Tiananmen Square in Beijing in 1989, an event that the government wants to forget the world.

For China, this is not just an economic issue but it is also a political issue. A former British colony, Hong Kong was returned to China under the concept of “one country, two systems” in 1997, which provides a fair degree of autonomy on the city.

Residents of Hong Kong enjoy far more rights and independence than the Chinese mainland residents.

The success of the formula is important for China, who wants to use it to bring Taiwan’s autonomous island under its control.

Taiwanese President Tsai Eng-Wayne is already using unrest in Hong Kong to confirm that “one country, two systems” are not working, and that China’s military intervention has caused many Taiwanese concerns Will be confirmed.

China’s best result is the abolition of protests and the return of normal relative life, as happened in Hong Kong after the recent pro-democracy pro-demonstrations, student-led “umbrella movement” which lasted for more than two months in 2014 The roads were captured.

Many protesters in this summer are the legends of the umbrella movement, who were disappointed that they failed to bring protests.

At least, some have shown themselves reluctant to retreat at this time – but the question is how much they will pay, and to what extent Beijing will allow them.

One Chinese historian and political commentator Zhang Levan said, “The problem is that it is not entirely about the Central Government.”

“If extremists are called for freedom in Hong Kong, which exits the situation from control, then the central government will definitely intervene.”

This is not the most probable result, but with the clear way of continuous protests, it can proceed, with Beijing becoming more chaotic.

There are “Hong Kong Not China” in many messages sent by protesters to paint on the walls.

At one level, it is a statement that there is a more independent legal system in Hong Kong and more freedom than the mainland – “one” country, two “theory” system.

At another level, this increasing frustration of life as part of China is reflected not only politically but financially.

Many young people are blamed for the influx of sugar funds to increase property prices. Some protesters took the Hong Kong flag from the British colonial era in protests.

For China, the second loss of Hong Kong will be worse than the fall of “one country, two systems” model. In Beijing, the Beijing-backed government had banned a political party last year to call for the independence of the city of 7.4 million people.

Kevin Carico, a senior official of Chinese Studies, said, “The Communist Party of China wants that someone wants to go into chaos in Hong Kong, so that it is an excuse to intervene or mismanage means that such anarchy is indispensable.” “he said. In Monash University in Australia.

The ruling Communist Party estimates stability above all, an option taken by the decision to end Tiananmen’s demonstrations with force.

Since then, the stability that the party has brought in China is a mantra that supports the country’s growth to become the second largest economy in the world and brings millions of poverty out.

China’s stability has come at a price for the freedom of expression such as personal freedom.

Under current President Xi Jinping, the party sought to increase its control in Hong Kong, from religion to social media, to control the society.

All Congress members are American citizens, and three of them were born in the United States.

Trump’s comments were criticized as “racist”, although they rejected the statement and said that their body was not “racial superiority”.

“As I said, I will end my political career in 2021, but I hope that life will continue even after that, and I hope that it will continue in a healthy way.”
