In an Interview Imran Khan said. "In 80s, we were training these Mujahideen people to do jihad against Soviet when they occupied Afghanistan. So, these people were trained in Pakistan, funded by the United States' CIA and now a decade later when the Americans come into Afghanistan".

Prime Minister of Pakistan Imar Khan Friday admitted that Pakistan trained terrorists with US funds from the United State Central Agency (CIA).

He added, “The same groups who are all in Pakistan are supposed to say that now because the Americans are there it is no longer jihad, it is terrorism. It was a big contradiction and I strongly felt that Pakistan should have been neutral because by joining in, these groups turned against us,”. Further he added “We lost 70,000 people, we lost over a 100 billion dollars to the economy. In the end, we were blamed for the Americans not succeeding in Afghanistan. I felt it was very unfair to Pakistan,”.

Imran Khan’s this comment came after US President Donald Trump cancelled his meeting with Taliban where he was supposed to meet the troop representative. According to report’s Taliban and US government was working towards peace deal and nine rounds of talks were held for the same.
