Washington DC, August 22: United States President Donald Trump has on Wednesday said nations like India, Turkey, Russia, and Iran will have to battle against terrorists in war-ravaged Afghan “at a certain point of time”, suggesting the role against violence was done only by America.

According to Tolo News, Trump stated other countries are presently making very low efforts to the fight against terrorism and insurgent outfits in Afghanistan.

Responding to a query over the reappearance of Daesh in Afghan, Trump, at the White House, said, “At a certain point Russia, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Turkey they are going to have to fight their battles too. We wiped out the caliphate 100 percent. I did it in record time.”

“But at a certain point of time, all of these countries are going to have to fight them because do we want to stay there for another 19 years? I don’t think so,” he added.

The US president’s remarks came a day after he suggested the American armed forces wouldn’t completely withdraw from the war-torn nation and that Washington would consider “somebody there” in order to ensure the Taliban doesn’t regain control over the region.

Trump said the US was combating the Afghan terrorists despite being some 7,000 miles away from the nation, while Pakistan and India weren’t going to adopt such measures even after being neighbour to Afghanistan.

“Look, India is right there. They are not fighting it. We are fighting it. Pakistan is right next door. They are fighting it very little. Very, very little. It’s not fair. The United States is 7,000 miles away,” Trump said. He said America led by him had already eliminated Daesh terror organization from Afghanistan.

“We haven’t been hearing much about IS. We took the caliphate 100 percent. When I took it at 98 percent I said all right, maybe we go home now, let these other countries in. Everyone went crazy. They said do 100 percent. They said it was going to take a year. It took me a month and they are gone,” he said.
