Withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan will create turmoil between India and Pak: Musharraf

Washington, Nov 7 (ANI): Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has warned that the US withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan would lead to Islamabad and New Delhi struggling over influence in the war-torn country.

Musharraf insisted that an unstable Afghanistan reeling from US withdrawal, with bordering Pakistan and India fighting for influence, would lead to problematic situation in the region.

"I think it's going to be very difficult, very difficult. I get a feeling that maybe we will revert to" the regional instability that preceded the 2001 US-led invasion, The Dawn quoted him, as saying.

He warned the US not to leave Afghanistan or set a time-line for troop withdrawal.

He also slammed Afghan Preident Hamid Karzai, saying that Pakistan had sought his permission to train troops in that war-torn country, but Karzai chose India for the job. (ANI)
