The U.S. President Donald Trump has claimed that he could win the war in Afghanistan in a week and could wipe the country ‘off the face of the earth’ in ten days.

However, he said he did not want to kill ten million people, suggesting that pakistan could play a vital role to ‘help the U.S. out.’

He made the remarks during a press conference with the visiting Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan at the White House.

Calling the war ‘ridiculous’, Trump went on to claim that the fight against Taliban has made the US the world’s ‘policemen.’

He Said “I have plans on Afghanistan that if I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth, would be gone, it would be over. Literally in ten days.”

Meanwhile, the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said “And there is no military solution in Afghanistan, there is no military solution because as Mr. President says if you go out all military there will be millions and millions of people who would die.”

He also expressed hopes that they would be able to ask the Taliban in coming days to negotiate with the Afghan government and come to a settlement and political solution.
