Federal Defense Minister Khawaja Asif has openly discussed his views on Pakistan’s involvement in the Afghan war, conceding that it has had adverse effects on the nation. Speaking during an interview on Samaa TV’s “Red Line with Talat Hussain” program, he acknowledged his strained relationship with the establishment in the past.

Asif revealed that the decision to remove Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had been made, citing private conversations where General Bajwa alleged a decade-long discord between Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz.

Despite his reservations about General Bajwa’s extension, Asif admitted to supporting it due to party consensus, even though he had initially opposed it. Taking responsibility for his stance, the PML-N leader acknowledged endorsing General Bajwa’s extension despite his disagreement with the decision.

Asif expressed readiness for any potential confrontation, urging General Bajwa to hold a press conference if he disagrees with Asif’s position. Additionally, he shed light on internal party dynamics, highlighting Mohsin Naqvi’s commendable performance in Punjab and his subsequent appointment.

Moreover, Asif revealed his surprise upon learning about his electoral defeat in 2018, underscoring the unpredictable nature of political outcomes.
