Imran Khan hits back at Trump: Here’s what foreign media is saying

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan

"One day we're told that a shadowy figure with no fixed address named Osama bin-Laden is public enemy number one, and USA jetfighters lay waste to his camp in Afghanistan". Pak has suffered enough fighting US's war. Latin American nations like Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador got similar treatment due to a failure to stop the so-called caravan of people seeking to cross into the U.S. and seek asylum there.

The accusation that Pakistan's military and intelligence have directly aided the Taliban, which is at war with U.S. forces in Afghanistan, is a constant accusation levelled at Islamabad by USA lawmakers.

In a sharp response, Khan stated that during the "war on terror", 75,000 casualties were reported in his country and over $123 billion was lost to economy, while US's aid was "a mere $20 billion".

Despite his criticism, Khan says that he is not anti-American and stresses that he wants the relationship between the two countries to be based on mutual respect.

The assault sent relations between the wayward allies to a new low. Despite the Admiral commanding missions that captured both Sadam Hussein and Osama bin Laden, Trump decided he wasn't a good man because he questioned Trump's war against the institution of the free press.

"It's hard for me to even begin to respond to this president when he's dealing with probably one of the most proudest and courageous operations that has taken place", Panetta told MSNBC. But that has done little to assuage United States scepticism.

Referring to the compound in Abbottabad where Osama bin Laden was found in 2011, Trump said Osama had been "living in Pakistan right next to the military academy; everybody in Pakistan knew he was there".

"Fools!." Trump wrote in the first tweet on Monday. Pakistan denies those allegations, pointing to the heavy toll of its war against the Pakistani Taliban, a separate militant group that carries out attacks inside Pakistan.

In addition to economic losses, PM Khan had highlighted the impact of the U.S. war on Pakistan's tribal areas.

Khan also pointed out that Pakistan continued to provide its roads and air space for re-supplying more than 10,000 USA troops now based in Afghanistan.

"Can Trump name another ally that gave such sacrifices?" he asked.

Donald Trump's latest tirade against Pakistan is threatening cooperation for an Afghan peace process Islamabad has warned, as anger over the American president's outburst continued.

Former Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said Pakistan continues to "pay in blood" for what it did for the United States of America and described the bilateral ties as a "relationship of betrayals and sanctions". "Also, whether China or Iran, US policies of containment & isolation do not coincide with Pak strategic interests", Mazari said.
