He further asserted that Pakistan is also looking forward to prosecuting the perpetrators of the 2008 Mumbai blasts as the case is in the country's interest because it was an act of terrorism.

The trip comes on the heels of a request by President Donald Trump for Pakistani assistance in dealing with the militant movement, which the US-backed government in Kabul has been unsuccessfully fighting against for 17 years.

A wrong impression had been created by the country's leadership in the past that Pakistan would be harmed if it did not fight someone else's war in Afghanistan, he alleged.

PM Khan said the USA has blamed Pakistan for its own deeply flawed policies, like the military approach to Afghanistan.

The Moscow Format Dialogue last month, she pointed out, brought representatives of the Taliban, Afghan Peace Council, the USA, and key regional countries around the same table to discuss the path to peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan.

"It not only cost us human lives, devastation of our tribal areas, but it also cost us our dignity", he said. Pakistan Prime Minister said he has asked for the status of the case which is being heard in an anti-terrorism court in his country.

The statement came after he admitted in mid-November that the Taliban "are not losing" in Afghanistan, where he said more efforts are needed to ensure lasting peace.

"They are fighting hard, but their losses are not going to be sustainable" unless measures are taken to "correct" recruiting and training issues, Lieutenant-General Kenneth McKenzie, who has been nominated to lead the USA military's Central Command that oversees wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan, said on December 4.

In an interview with TOLOnews, the U.S. ambassador said the USA is not negotiating on behalf of the Afghan government as he pointed at the efforts by the United States on Afghan peace. "We would like a proper relationship with the U.S". "From Pakistan's point of view, we do not want the Americans to leave Afghanistan in a hurry like they did in 1989".

She referred to the prime minister's first address to the nation in which he reaffirmed Pakistan's support to peace, stability and prosperity in Afghanistan.

Earlier in the day, Pakistan army spokesperson Asif Ghafoor claimed that the initiative had been "negatively presented in India". "The exchange was about being blamed for deeply flawed U.S. policies - the military approach to Afghanistan".

Stating that Pakistan had politicised the Kartarpur project, he said that India hoped that Pakistan will implement its commitments. "There were a lot of people in Pakistan who opposed it, including me", PM Imran Khan responded to the accusations.

He said Pakistan has received monetary help from Saudi Arabia, China and the United Arab Emirates, but said the latter two countries wanted the figures to remain "confidential".
