The US should implement the statement.” Some other lawmakers also welcomed the US President’s tweet of the year.Senate Chairman Fazal Hadi Muslimyar said: “Trump’s social media statement against Pakistan is a positive development for Afghanistan. It is not a simple thing that the US president has started believing that Pakistan deceives them.”He asked Pakistan to improve relation with Kabul otherwise the neighbouring country would be isolated.“We don’t want the Pakistan nation to suffer like Afghans suffered for 40 years. We want Pakistan to sincerely fight against terrorism so that the people of both countries can live in a peaceful environment.”Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was on Tuesday reportedly chairing a high level meeting to discuss Trump’s latest tirade.
