Pakistan,as being said,understand,American presence in the region does not go in favoure of Pakistan's stability

In such a position ,two ally moving toward their destination to which it is very hard to achieve.

American forces's withdrawal from Afghanistan, Taliban's attendence negitiating table, Pakistan's desire to get itself out of the going on conflct, looks very hard within short span of time because Taliban have pre-conditions that are not acceptable to the United States

Time is runing out,but there is no remarkable change in the circumstances,situation is explosive.God bless us all.
