Mr Trump said, "I get along very well with India and PM Modi".
The president encouraged Russia, India, Pakistan and other neighbouring countries to take responsibility for Afghanistan's security because "massively wealthy countries" were using the USA to subsidise their own forces.
USA military officials maintain that the Pentagon has received no official orders or guidance on withdrawal plans, despite reports Trump wants a plan to cut the number of troops in Afghanistan by half. They house the enemy, they help the enemy. That's like five hours of what we spend.
In his comments, Trump argued that Russian Federation and other regional nations should take a more active role in resolving the ongoing Afghanistan conflict between the Taliban and the country's government. "We will be doing that in not-too-distant future", he said. But I ended the $1.3 billion that we paid.
"A meeting with the new Pakistani leadership would be held soon", he said.
Former Afghan intelligence chief Rahmatullah Nabil responded with a string of tweets that addressed the impact the Soviet loss in Afghanistan had on the outcome of the Cold War and lamenting recent reports that the United States was planning a drawdown of its troops in Afghanistan.
In November past year, Trump defended his administration's decision to stop hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid to Pakistan, saying Islamabad does not do "a damn thing" for the U.S. and its government helped late al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden hide near its garrison city of Rawalpindi. "Praising Soviet invasion of #Afghanistan is an insult to the anti-communist struggle", said former Pakistani ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani, a dissident-in-exile and chronicler of Pakistan's follies. And literally they went bankrupt; they went into being called Russian Federation again, as opposed to the Soviet Union. "No more!" Trump added. We want to help our people.
New Delhi was fuming at the barb but did not hit back directly at Mr Trump, keeping in mind the sensitivities and overall strength of India-US ties.
Pakistan has played a key role in starting peace talks with the Afghan Taliban held recently in UAE.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had met Prime Minister Khan in Islamabad in September a year ago and pressed him to take "sustained and decisive measures" against terrorists threatening the regional peace and stability.
The US President alleged that Pakistan has not been fair to the United States.
There was ultimately a problem with extremism in Afghanistan, but it developed largely after the USSR left, and the mujahideen groups that sprang up to fight the Soviets devolved into the Taliban.
A year after accusing Islamabad of "lies and cheat" Trump has expressed his desire to have "great relationship" with Pakistan.
