PM Imran Khan’s exclusive interview to Russia Today
ISLAMABAD - Islamabad suffered great losses when it joined Washington’s War on Terror, and in the end the US still pinned the blame on Pakistan for its own setbacks in Afghanistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan told RT in an exclusive interview.
Pakistan took a serious hit after joining the US-led global campaign against terrorism, Khan revealed. Before that, Islamabad had been training the Islamist Mujahedeen fighters, who were *“funded by the American CIA”* to wage war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan in the 1980s.
*We lost 70,000 people. We lost over $100 billion [from] the economy.*
