Amid the massive political storm over Donald Trump’s Kashmir mediation claim, Kabul has demanded clarification from Washington over the US President’s ‘Afghanistan could be wiped off the face of the Earth’ remark. In a stern statement, Afghan government said that, “Afghanistan will remain with all glory in world political scene. Afghan nation has not and willl never allow any foreign power to determine its fate.” During a meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, Trump reportedly said that, “We’re like policemen. We’re not fighting a war. If we wanted to fight a war in Afghanistan and win it, I could win that war in a week. But I don’t want to kill 10 million people. Afghanistan could be wiped off the face of the Earth. I don’t want to go that route.”
