Yesterday, Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif demanded that the United States stop blaming Islamabad for its failures during 16 years in Afghanistan.

Besides top United States officials, the premier will also meet world leader who will be there for the UN General Assembly session.

Pakistan responded on Thursday by saying the U.S. military itself is failing to eliminate militant sanctuaries inside Afghanistan.

In an interview with Bloomberg on Saturday, Abbasi had said US President Donald Trump's strategy for Afghanistan would meet the same fate as the plans of his predecessors.

"From day one we have been saying very clearly the military strategy in Afghanistan has not worked and it will not work, there has to be a political settlement", Abbasi said.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that Pakistan wanted peace and stability in Afghanistan as it has suffered immensely on account of the prevailing situation in that country.

Pakistan on Sunday postponed a visit by a U.S. acting Assistant Secretary of State, officials said, as protests broke out against Trump's accusations that Islamabad was prolonging the war in Afghanistan, the daily reported. Still, he added the Afghan government should be "owning" the issue and dealing with the Taliban.

The British High Commissioner said the Britain was committed to support Pakistan in its efforts for a peaceful and stable region.
