Pakistan is building a wall along the country's border with Afghanistan and the Pakistani government wants US President Donald Trump to help fund the project.
"The cost will not cost the US," Khawaja Foreign Minister Muhammad Asif told Bloomberg. "The war weighs on them a lot more."
The Pakistani government has just completed a small part of the wall because of funding issues. But Asif still expects him to finish next year.
Asif describes the 2,300-kilometer border between Pakistan and Afghanistan as "open to all." Asif said, as many as 70,000 people cross daily, sparking terrorism, drug trafficking and militant activities.
Asif also said that the repatriation of more than 2 million Afghan refugees from Pakistan is essential for peace and wants the United States to help the repatriation. [as/al]
