Almost seventy-five percent of Afghanistan’s budget consisted of foreign aid for the last two dec-ades that will be not an option now as the countries that lost war are settling score through economic measures, he said.

Shahid Rasheed Butt said that the attitude of influ-ential countries would put the region on fire result-ing in unresolvable problems.

He noted that the international community is not in a mood to give a chance to Taliban to walk their talk and they have started squeezing them.
