Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday demanded to bring policy on Afghanistan in the Parliament for debate.

In a statement, he said that Pakistan will surely get affected by the situation in Afghanistan.

The reaction came after Taliban swiftly ended Afghanistan’s 20-year war, as thousands of people mobbed the city’s airport trying to flee the group’s feared hardline rule.

President Ashraf Ghani fled the country on Sunday night as the insurgents encircled the capital, capping a military victory that saw them capture all cities in just 10 days.

‘The Taliban have won with the judgment of their swords and guns, and are now responsible for the honour, property and self-preservation of countrymen,’ Ghani said after fleeing.

Government forces collapsed without the support of the US military, which invaded in 2001 after the September 11 attacks and toppled the Taliban for its support of Al-Qaeda.—INP
