He further said that there is a "clarity" in Washington's stance now and maintained that there should be US-regional coalition to pressurise Pakistan army to bring peace.

"President @realDonaldTrump tweet on Pakistan's duplicitous position over the past 15 years is vindication that the war on terror is not in bombing Afghan villages and homes but in the sanctuaries beyond Afghanistan.

I welcome today's clarity in President Trump's remarks," Mr Karzai said in a series of tweets.

In another missive in the micro blogging site, the former Afghanistan President proposed a "joint US - regional coalition" to pressurise the Pakistan military establishment to bring peace to not just Afghanistan but the entire region.

"The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools," President Trump tweeted.

"They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!", he further said.
