"Were we not to put the pressure on Al-Qaeda, ISIS (Islamic State) and other groups in the region we are putting on today, it is our assessment that, in a period of time their capability would reconstitute, and they have today the intent, and in the future, they would have the capability to do what we saw on 9/11", Dunford said when asked about a potential withdrawal of the USA military contingent from the war-ravaged country. "I have been saying for past many years that war is no solution to Afghanistan's problem and now it has also been realised by the U.S.", he added. "That is how as much as we can we will facilitate", the spokesman explained when asked what Pakistan could do to nudge the insurgents to engage in peace negotiations.
"We have seen some encouraging signs", he added he recalled the ceasefire between Afghan government and the Taliban this year.
He said that Pakistan's founder Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah sacrificed everything during his struggle for the creation of Pakistan.

Lt Gen Kenneth F. McKenzie, the next commander of the US Central Command, said this at a Congressional confirmation hearing. "Now I'm happy that everyone realizes there is only a political solution", he said. It has to be a regional solution not just a solution centered in Afghanistan. "Resolving that case is in our interest because it was an act of terrorism", he said. Washington and Afghan officials have long maintained the Taliban leadership is based in Pakistan and is being covertly supported by the country's spy agency.
Speaking to the opening session of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation foreign ministers meeting on peace and war in Afghanistan in Brussels, Stoltenberg said that the alliance will continue its military and financial support to Afghanistan through to 2024 so that the country is prevented from becoming safe haven for terrorists. It will be hard to reach a settlement without some form of assistance or Pakistan.
Some 14,000 US soldiers are now serving in Afghanistan, and McKenzie couldn't say how much longer the United States would remain in the country. Then, in 1989, when the Soviets packed up and left, the USA did too.
