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.*
